2021 Summer Baseball Registration remains open

In House registration (Mites and Little League - 1st-4th graders) is open.   

Community League registration is closed

In House/Community League Evaluations - April 24

Parents, we will be holding evaluations for the In-House and Community Leagues on Saturday, April 24 in the gym at West Middle school.  We ask that all participants follow these CDC Guidelines for health/safety in youth sports.   A mask is required to be worn at all times while in the building and no players may attend evaluations if they are experiencing a fever or any illness.

 

Parents should drop off their players at West Middle School 10 minutes prior to designated evaluation times so we can get the kids checked in.   Due to the current Covid restrictions parents are not allowed to wait in the school until the evaluations are over.  We do encourage parents to either wait in the parking lot until the evaluations are over or come back at the designated ending time.  If your player is not available to make the evaluations the board will automatically place kids on a team for the summer.  

 

West Middle School

200 10th Ave E

Shakopee, MN 55379

 

Please stick to your players designated evaluation time.  Players should come dressed and ready for baseball activity. The 3 components to these evaluations will be throwing, hitting, and some fielding drills.  Players should bring a water bottle, their own baseball equipment including glove, bat, and helmet.  Since these evaluations are indoors players should wear tennis shoes as NO CLEATS are allowed in the gym. 

 

Please remember that the main goal of this evaluation is to place kids at a competitive level for this summer.  This will not impact a player’s baseball status in Shakopee for life!  Rosters change every year.  There are too many examples of how kids change over the years to predict high school success; there are examples (good and bad) EVERY YEAR.

Baseball Swap Meet - March 20

Thanks to everyone who took part in the  Baseball Swap Meet Saturday, March 20 in the lobby of the Shakopee High School Field House.   There was a great turnout and a lot of gently used baseball equipment changed hands.  Pictures below are from this year's swap meet.

 

We will be doing another swap meet during the in house evaluations on April 24 at West Middle School.  More details will be posted later.

2021 Travel Team Rosters - 11-14 yr olds

With the announcement of our travel teams, SYBA would like to share a few plans we have discussed:

  • These announced teams are set, for now. With the expanded timing of fall tryouts through next season, we understand there may be some changes to each roster due to a variety of reasons.  We will be using our replacing players policy in our handbook as our primary guide.
  • Our “normal” registration dates will take place in late January/early February for the other ages of travel and in-house/community league. The rest of your travel fee will be due then (approximately $250). We will also accept new registrations for ages 11-14 travel baseball at that time (ages 11-12’s especially need more players so those players who did not make a AAA or AA team at this time can have a full travel team option to play next summer). If we do not have enough players to form an A team, we will have the community league option for those players.  January travel registrations will not bump any players who tried out this fall.  
  • We want to develop a positive team culture at each age level to continue to build a strong program; therefore, we will be offering our optional off-season practices to all travel kids at each age level together (i.e. all 11’s or all 12’s will all work out/practice together, including those who did not currently make a AA or AAA team).  We hope this will also lend itself to an easier transition, if we do have to move players to new teams as players and coaches will all be working together. Based on registration numbers next February, we may be adding players to these current rosters in an effort to fill rosters from the A level on up/provide opportunities for all kids to play at the competitive level registered (i.e. we may go to 12 players on each roster if numbers allow). These off-season workouts will help identify these potential roster changes. Again, all players who registered and tried out this fall will practice together this off-season.

 

Remember, this is our first year using fall tryouts and forming teams to provide optional off-season practices and training together – we know there will be some bumps along the road but will continue to do what we feel is best for all the kids in our program.  As always, we will re-evaluate our tryouts and processes at the end of next summer’s season.
