Registration fee: $135 and $55 Annual NYSA Family Membership Dues.
What baseball gear is included with my registration fee?
Baseball jersey and hat are included in the registration fee.
What forms of payment do you accept for the registration fee?
Registering online requires use of a Credit/Debit card. (This is the easiest and most preferred method of registration.)
However, you may select the option to "Pay by check", and pay at the NYSA office with Cash or Money Order, as the NYSA does not take personal checks.
What other expenses may I incur?
You are responsible for providing your child’s batting helmet, baseball glove, baseball bat/s, cup, baseball cleats and batting gloves.
Pitchers in the 15U division will be required to wear turf or tennis shoes at other parks with artificial mounds. (Perdido/Tiger Point currently)
Currently, the baseball program provides catchers gear for each team in all divisions but some players prefer to have their own gear.
Other optional expenses include baseball/s, and a bag to carry all your athlete's gear in.
What type of bat do I need to purchase for my athlete?
- For NYSA Park Play - All bats having the USSSA/BPF 1.15 Thumbprint stamp and/or the BBCOR stamp are acceptable and any ALLOY bat that does not contain the words "Coach Pitch" or "CP" are also acceptable for ALL DIVISIONS. Composite bats are permitted only if they contain the USSSA/BPF 1.15 or BBCOR thumbprint stamp. Big Barrel bats are acceptable up to widths of 2 3/4". Bat length and weight are NOT restricted to a "Drop -3" in the 15U rec-division.
- GCYB Inner-League & All-Star Play - All bats must have the USA Thumbprint and/or the BBCOR stamp to be acceptable for play.
When are practices?
Practices vary by team and age group and are usually once or twice per week during the evenings on weekdays.
Where are practices?
Practices are held on the Baseball Fields 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 are games?
MOST games are played on Saturdays.
Some Saturdays may have doubleheader games depending on the number of teams in each division.
There is a chance we will play games at other parks in the evenings during the week dependent upon age group.
Where are games played?
NYSA interlocks the game schedule with other GCYB parks. (Perdido, Myrtle Grove, Molino, and Tiger Point are a few examples.)
Each park typically hosts games once every other week on a alternating schedule requiring travel to the aforementioned and other parks.
We generally play against our own NYSA teams the Saturdays games are scheduled in our home park.
When is the schedule available/posted? At the beginning of the Fall Baseball season, a partial game schedule may be posted on the NYSA Website/Fall Baseball page due to not having other parks information concerning scheduling at the time. If this is the case, don't get discouraged, As a general rule of thumb the park typically schedules each team a minimum of ten games for the Fall Baseball season. Keep in mind, we deal with more variables from outside our own park during Fall Baseball. Any updates, additions/time changes/cancellations will be forwarded out by respective team coaches as soon as we receive them. Please be flexible and patient.
When does the season start and end? The season starts in mid-September and ends mid-November.
Where can I find maps of and to the ball fields? Maps can be found under Park Maps on the NYSA website.
