Fall Registration

Since we have not received confirmation of fields, due to the negotiations between two governmental bodies, we are currently having to limit each age division to only 4 teams. Some divisions will fill up quickly. If we find we will get additional fields, additional players will be able to register, as we can expand the number of teams we can have this fall. In the event registration fills up quickly for a specific division or more, and another division or more isn’t filling, we may eliminate said division, until we can confirm enough fields.

The fall baseball season will run from the middle of August, when practices begin, through October, ending in a single elimination tournament for all divisions.

Teams should have one indoor practice per week and many teams, but not all, will have an outdoor practice per week, as some teams choose to not do an indoor practice. We have limited outdoor fields, and with the sun setting earlier as the season goes on, teams have chosen in the past to not do outdoor practices in the later half of the season, since they have to start at 4:00pm, beginning in mid September.

The season is planned for 8 games, in addition to the tournament, with no make up availability for weather cancelations. We will likely play over Labor Day weekend as well as both weekends surrounding fall break. Games will mostly be on Saturdays, with possibly a few Friday night games, if we are able to acquire the lighted fields that are currently in limbo. We will not play Sundays or other weeknights, although practices will be held during the week. There is a possibility we may nix the tournament to allow for more teams to play, but we would still award at least the top team in each division, based on regular season record, if this were to happen.

The cost of registration for all baseball divisions is $350 per player.

Fall Softball Practices will begin the week of August 19 and games will begin September 7. Teams will play 5 weekend double headers and an End of Season Tournament October 12 and 13. 8U, 10U, 12U and 14U teams will play Saturdays and one Sunday. 18U teams will play Sundays and one Saturday so they will be free to play for their High School Teams. Due to participation numbers, softball is more of a travel sport. We expect 8U and 10U teams to play most of their games, close to home, on the South Side of the Metro Area. 12U, 14U, and 18U teams may have to travel further to places like Brighton or Westminster to play interleague opponents. Teams will have the option of having one indoor and one outdoor practice each week. It will depend on the team.

CYBSA will be joining hundreds of other Colorado teams to interleague in the Indian Peaks Girls Softball Association this Fall Season. We will play by USSSA Rules with IPGSA Modifications.

Fall Softball registration is $275 per player.
