Registration opened: Jan 9
Registration closed: March 12
The 2023 travel registration will open after the 1st of the year. Over the next several weeks, a series of email messages will go out to highlight the dates and changes that affect our membership and student athletes.
We have made some updates to registration costs for the upcoming season, please read our Travel Team fees for details. Scholarships through the CAC are available. Please considering donating to the CAC fund during the registration if you are able to.
Travel Team Players will continue to be responsible for providing their own white baseball pants, maroon baseball socks (or stirrups) and maroon belt.
Travel Teams are designated by age level (e.g. 15U = 15 years old and under).
Player age level is determined by the player's age on April 30 of the current year. Players in their respective age groups must not reach the next age before May 1 of the current year. Players are not allowed to tryout for and play up a grade level unless an exception by the NYBA travel committee is granted. As passed by the board in 2023, starting at 14U, if there is an option available in the school district in which the student athlete attends, the player should play with that community's association/team. If there is no option in that community players will be placed on an NYBA team where space allows as to not displace a Northfield district student athlete. Exceptions will be discussed by the NYBA Board on a case by case basis.
A non-refundable $50 tryout fee will be charged for all players trying out for a Travel team.

Those currently enrolled in 4th-8th grades looking for a less competitive option than Travel. League is in conjunction with Lakeville and Farmington and will have minimal travel during the season for games against these neighboring communities. This league will take place of In-House (Minors) for 4th and 5th graders starting in 2023.
Days and times may vary, but should primarily be Monday/Wednesday
In order to provide as many players an opportunity to participate in youth travel baseball, the NYBA gives priority to those that are in the same grade and meet the age requirement.
*Please see the Travel Baseball page for more information.
All Travel Teams (Tournament and Traveling) are selected by a tryout. Please see the Travel Team Tryouts page for more information about the tryouts and the Tryout Schedule page for tryout dates and times.
The NYBA will be collecting checks in advance for the DIBs volunteer program, requiring a commitment of 5 hours per FAMILY. Families are required to provide a check for $300 prior to participating in tryouts/evaluations for Travel and Minors or prior to the start of the season for all younger leagues. These checks will be held during the season. If at the end of the 2023 fall baseall season the family has completed the required volunteer hours their check will be destroyed. However, if a family’s volunteer requirement has not been met by the end of the 2023 NYBA and fall baseball season, their check will be deposited into the NYBA account. Please note, if a deposited check does not have sufficient funds when it is deposited a return fee will be invoiced to the member and/or applied to future registrations.
Volunteering is essential to any youth organization and we strongly encourage you to be involved in helping to make the season a successful one for our kids. However, if you think your family will not be able to fulfill the DIBs requirement we are now offering a buyout option. To participate in the buyout option, families must submit a check for $200. Buyout checks are also due at tryouts/evaluations or prior to the season as the usual DIBs checks are. The buyout checks will be deposited at the time of receipt prior to the start of the season.
Families of rostered coaches, board members and travel team managers will be exempt from the required hours associated with DIBs.
We will be posting DIBs hours on our website under the DIBs tab where you can claim tasks to fulfill your volunteer obligation.
