Updates from the Commissioner

FROM THE NYSA COMMISSIONER:

Alcon, 
           
            Due to recent events involving COVID-19 (CoronaVirus), all NYSA Spring Sports programs have been cancelled except All-Star/Travel Baseball and All-Star/Travel Softball. The NYSA Board voted to refund Rec spring baseball registration. 

            NYSA requests all All-Star / Travel baseball / All-Star / Travel Softball participants / family members / spectators practice utmost care in respect to washing hands often, following state / county procedure concerning distancing or staying home if you are experiencing ANY COVID-19 SYMPTOMS. Please access the following hyperlink concerning updates and information concerning COVID-19 on the Santa Rosa County Website at SantaRosa.fl.gov

            In addition, NYSA adopted the the following procedure from GSSA and USSSA Baseball relative to physical contact during games, practices, etc. NYSA instituted a "NO CONTACT - NO HANDSHAKE POLICY" until further notice. This includes all physical contact and extends to customary game-related activities, such as coaches' handshakes, umpire-coach introductions / post-game handshakes and high fives between members of opposing teams. Instead, umpires / coaches / players will use verbal queues, such as saying "good game" without shaking hands, high five or fist bumping. 

I will continue to provide updates on the Baseball webpage and the NYSA Homepage as I receive additional information.

NYSA Park President

REMINDER:


Coaches/Players/Parents/Spectators please review the Navarre Youth Sports Association (NYSA) Code of Conduct (CoC) before the season begins. Violations of the NYSA CoC will be strictly enforced. The NYSA CoC is located in the Volunteer Corner section of the NYSA Spring Baseball webpage.


NEW PROGRAM:

RAVENS TRAVEL BASEBALL


Parents, 

  
            Due to numerous requests, NYSA started a Travel Baseball program for 8U, 10U, 12U, and 14 /15U age groups this season. NYSA has had great success in past years with REC and SELECT/ALL-STAR teams. NYSA is looking forward to providing yet a another program to play competitive baseball geared towards player progression that will afford players that left the park to play Travel Baseball elsewhere due to NYSA not offering a Travel baseball program previously the opportunity to come back home. Please contact me by email at [email protected]
if interested.

May my son who is playing Rec ball at NYSA also play Travel ball on another team?  We provide Select Teams (Ravens) at each age division to provide a higher competitive experience for our players which is fully integrated in our Rec program.  The focus is on player development and safety as pitch count rules are used for both Rec and Select play to protect our player's young arms.  Therefore, we do not allow our registered players to play on outside travel ball teams as this may put the player's health at risk.  Please contact the Baseball Commissioner for guidance if you have any questions regarding this rule.
