2020 Season Update

SPYBA Families:

We hope this communication finds you and your family well.  The SPYBA Board wants to keep you updated the best we can as we progress together through this point in time. 

At this time, in accordance with the state and federal government social distancing guidelines being extended until April 30th, we will be postponing the start of our season until May 1st at the earliest.  With that being said, it is our hope that we will still have a SPYBA league and travel season, we will continue to monitor the situation.  We know that players and families alike are looking forward to being outside, playing baseball and being with friends and family.  When our community and country have worked together through this period, we plan on providing that for you.

We also recognize that many businesses are struggling during this period and want to take this opportunity to promote our great SPYBA Sponsors and ask that you consider supporting these businesses during this time.  The full list of Sponsors can be found under the "Sponsors" tab on our website.

Stay safe, stay healthy, we're all in this together.

SPYBA LEAGUE UMPIRES NEEDED

Are you or a family member or older SPYBA player Interested in Umpiring?  We need interested people to assist in Umpiring for our leagues (9-15). This is a PAID opportunity and a great way to help SPYBA.  We depend on SPYBA players of 13-15U age groups, adults, parents, and former players to help make our league run.  

 

Training opportunities will be available to assist you in getting started along with Rule Books. This will be conducted at a mandatory Umpire meeting / clinic. The date / time of this meeting / clinic will be determined once the league schedule has been made and will be communicated to all interested persons.


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.  Raffle tickets will be handed out at the parent meetings.  More information will be given out then.

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.
