Please access the Santa Rosa County Website concerning updates and information concerning COVID-19 at SantaRosa.fl.gov
 
In addition, NYSA adopted 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 Fall Baseball webpage as I receive additional information.

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 Fall Baseball Webpage.

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.
