IMPORTANT! - 2020 SPYBA Fundraising Changes

SPYBA Families

After years of selling pizzas as a fundraiser, the SPYBA Board is trying something new.  

For the 2020 SPYBA baseball season, instead of selling pizzas, we are giving families raffle tickets to sell.  The cost of the raffle tickets will be included in your 2020 registration fee, but can be recouped by selling the tickets.
 

How will this work? Please read the document attached below for more details!

SPYBA Philosophy of Operation

The Stevens Point Youth Baseball Association (SPYBA) is a recreation and travel league open to all boys and girls within the age limits determined by the National Babe Ruth Association  living in the Stevens Point area. The primary objective of our leagues is to promote the fun and fair play of baseball. Fundamental skills, safety, sportsmanship, teamwork and honesty are emphasized at every level of play. Winning is not emphasized in our recreational leagues. Opportunities for more competitive play are offered via our Tournament Teams. Coaches, umpires, and parents should all act as role models and understand the importance of participation in youth baseball.
