Registration : There will be NO late registrations.

*Once rosters have been signed and forwarded to the Archdiocese office no new players can be added.

Season: The Region 11 baseball season runs from March 1st through June 18th. Practices may not begin before March 1st and all games and playoffs must be completed before June 18th.

Division: There are two divisions for the Junior CYO baseball program. The Junior Varsity team includes all players in 5th and 6th grades and the Varsity team includes all players in 7th and 8th grade.

Levels: There are two levels of competition for both the Junior Varsity and Varsity teams. The A level is considered a competitive level while Parish level is less competitive and more instructional. It should be noted if we can only field one team in a particular level then that team must compete in the A level.

Evaluations

  • Boys of both levels will have scheduled evaluations in the beginning of March pending weather.
  • There will be at least two tryout practices that will be facilitated by the assigned coaches. After evaluations are completed, the coaches will determine the rosters for each team based upon individual abilities.
  • The schedule for evaluations will be communicated through the CYO newsletter, parish bulletin and Junior CYO website.

Practices Practices will be held at Nativity of Our Lord, Archbishop Wood or Warminster Township fields.

Games Home games are played at Nativity of Our Lord and Archbishop Wood.

Game Schedule - A scheduling meeting is planned and attended by all coaches participating in Region 11. Schedules are not usually completed and confirmed until the beginning of April. If your player plays on a travel team it is important to forward their travel schedule to their coaches prior to the meeting. Every attempt is made to avoid conflicts.

What to Bring - All athletes should wear the appropriate cleats Metal cleats are strictly prohibited and bring a baseball glove and water bottle to all practices and games.

Uniforms -  We are using uniforms from previous years in an effort to control our cost. We will do our best to honor all size requests made at registration. Uniforms must be returned at the end of the season.

Pictures -  A professional photographer will be taking team and individual pictures. These pictures are optional. However, we do ask that all team members attend the photo date in order to have a complete team picture. The times will be distributed by the coaches as well as posted on the Junior CYO website.

Tournaments - Any CYO team that wishes to play in a tournament may do so but registration fees must be covered by the attending team. Prior to a tournament commitment, the coach must be given permission by the Athletic Director.
