Welcome to Spartan Youth Club Baseball!

 

Spartan Youth Club baseball is for ages 5-14 (we do not offer a T-ball league).  The cost for registration is $305 with an early registration discount of $20 if paid by 12/31/2018.

 

Age Cutoff Date for Baseball

Prior to the 2006 baseball season, AYL and Spartan Youth Club adopted the age cutoff change being implemented by all youth baseball organizations. The age cutoff date for AYL is May 1st  For example, to play in the 12u division in 2018, a player can not turn 13 before May 1, 2019 . 

Type of Play

Ages 5-8   A/AA Coach Pitch

8 AAA Player Pitch

All other ages and level of play is Player Pitch

 

Spartans will no longer be furnishing team batting helmets for the A/AA Teams. Each child will be required to provide an NOCSAE certified batting helmet. All helmets must be Gold, Black or Purple.  For safety as well as hygiene, we as a board feel it is in the best interests of all that each and every player has their own helmet.. You can expect to pay somewhere between $17.00 and $35.00 for a properly approved helmet.
