SFYBL Baseball: K - 8th Grade

Registration Period: Monday, November 29th - Friday, December 3rd (extended thru December 7th)

In SFYBL, a player’s “baseball age” is determined by their birth age on August 31st of the current season year (2022)

A player's "baseball age" (not grade) determines which division they are eligible to play in.

For example: a player born on July 4th, 2012 would be considered 10U during the 2022 season.

*Registration links follow SFYBL division information below.

Note: Teams max out at 16 players and we need a minimum of 10 players to field a team. Please note that some players will need to move up to the next division if they are not age eligible for the division their friends are on. Uniforms are supplied by the league for T-Ball through Pinto. SFB will be supplying uniforms for Mustang through Pony leagues.

Registration is a two-step process. After registering and paying through SFB, the Athletic Director will send you a team link to finalize your registration with the league. It is important you register with both SFB & SFYBL in order for your child to be placed on the roster.
