Updates from the Commissioner


NYSA is excited for another fun filled baseball season this Spring!  We have some fantastic news to share, alongside some new people to introduce!  In 2024, baseball will be represented by two commissioners and a ballpark mom.  Brandon McSwain will serve as the Lower Division Commissioner overseeing 4U, 6U, and 8U.  Lee Solt is the Upper Division Commissioner managing 10U, 12U, and 14U.  Amber Calhoun is our very own Ballpark Mom assisting all team moms across the league.  Additionally, a brand new staff of committee members were hired and assigned to each division to act as liaisons between the coaches and commissioners.  There were also some changes that were made in the off season as well.  A 4U developmental league, for age 4 only, was created to introduce the game of baseball to our rookie players, as well as, to teach our 1st year parents how to coach.  The 8U Division underwent a transformation this past fall by converting the "Coach Pitch" Division into a "Machine Pitch" Division. Furthermore, Spring and Fall of 2023 witnessed an amazing effort towards fundraising!  The money earned will be invested back into the park to include two new scoreboards, pitching machines, a Blackstone grill for the concession stand, and updated catcher's gear.  Excitement is buzzing around the ballpark, and our two new commissioners want to provide your child and family with a better opportunity to participate in America's greatest pastime.  Please help us spread the word, tell your friends, and let's play ball!!

If you have questions regarding 4U, 6U & 8U, email the Lower Division Commissioner at [email protected].  For 10U, 12U & 14U, email the Upper Division Commissioner at [email protected]*Lastly, players age 15 are allowed to play in 14U.  

Stay tuned for more updates on this page and follow us on Facebook at Navarre Youth Baseball--NYSA!!

DID YOU KNOW...that NYSA is an all-volunteer organization?  Yes, with exception to the umpires, all commissioners, committee members, coaches, and team moms are 100% volunteers.  This means that throughout the season, your assistance will be requested to aid with running the concession stands, picking up trash, keeping the scorebook, operating the scoreboard, partaking in our once-a-season field day preparations, and participating in fundraisers.  NYSA was built on the backs of volunteers.  We cannot continue to grow and prosper without YOUR help!  Many of us look at NYSA as the ballpark our children will grow up in and create countless, unforgettable memories that one day they will tell their kids about.  We greatly appreciate any and all help that you can provide throughout the season.   A wise man once said, "We make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give."

Baseball Code of Conduct

This Coach/Player/Parent Code of Conduct is not intended to be an all-inclusive list of rules concerning coaches/players/parent behavior. All coaches, players and parents registered to play on an NYSA Baseball team are expected to conduct themselves in a manner that is above and beyond respectful of others and reflects positively on Navarre Youth Sports Association.

Sportsmanship:  All coaches, players and parents must learn and display a sense of fair play.  Be humble in victory, gracious in defeat.  Players and parents must represent your team and Navarre Youth Sports Association by always showing good sportsmanship, win or lose. 

Player Conduct: Each player will agree to the following:

1.         Respect your Coach, Coaches, Teammates, Parents, Opponents, Spectators, and Umpires.

When are practices? Practices vary by team and age group.

Where are practices? Practices are held on the baseball fields or batting cages at the NYSA main complex or at the Holley Baseball Field (Practice location is dependent upon age group and field availability in the main complex).

When does the season start and end? Practices begin the week of February 19 and the final games conclude on May 18, 2024. 

When are games? Game days vary per division but you can expect games during the middle of the week and on Saturdays.  There are no baseball events on Sundays. 

Where are games played?  We generally play against our own NYSA teams at the NYSA Ball Park.  
When is the schedule available/posted?  At the beginning of the Spring Baseball season, a practice schedule and game schedule will be posted on the NYSA Website/Spring Baseball page.  Once games begin, a reduced practice schedule will be posted.  The schedule can change throughout the season as a result of events that are out of our control (numerous rainouts, hurricanes, etc).  As a general rule of thumb, the park typically schedules each team a minimum of ten games for the Spring Baseball season.  Lastly, practice/game updates, time changes or cancellations will be posted on the Navarre Youth Baseball -- NYSA Facebook page, as well as, communicated through text messages to your team's head coach.  

Where can I find maps of and to the ball fields? Maps can be found under Park Maps on the NYSA website.

May my son who is playing Rec ball at NYSA also play Travel ball on another team?  Short answer, Yes!  If a child is playing travel ball, it must be understood by the parent that NYSA recreational baseball must come FIRST when faced with scheduling predicaments regarding travel ball.  Our point of view is the majority of players at NYSA do not participate in travel ball and recreational ball simultaneously; it is unfair to your child's teammates and coaches if they cannot depend on your child to attend a practice or game.
