"I began instructing because of my passion to teach the younger generation. I have gained a lifetime of lessons from sports and want nothing more than to pass that knowledge on to my athletes. For the past 15 years I have focused on the art of hitting. I have developed a hitting philosophy with the focus on structural foundation and energy transfer from the ground all the way up through the bat. As a father, coach, and former athlete, I care about all of my athletes and will demand the absolute most out of them to ensure they are reaching their maximum potential. " - Vernon Maxwell

HOW DOES THE AGE CUT OFF WORK?
The NEW baseball age cutoff for the Spring 2024 season, and all subsequent seasons, will now be January 1st each year, just like softball and tournament play.
This means that the baseball age will now be according to the calendar year. However, the USSSA age calculator will still be set to May 1st, so in order to determine the January 1st cutoff for baseball, you must select "Fastpitch" under the sport category.
Example: If you are 10 all the way up through December 31, 2023, you will play 10u for the Fall 2023 and Spring/Summer 2024 seasons (August 1, 2023 - July 31, 2024).
What is the importance of August 1?
The Baseball and Softball Season runs from August 1 through July 31 of the next year. During this time frame, EYSA offers a Fall League, Spring League, and a Summer League. As of August 1, all players are required to play in the next age division from what they were eligible to play during the previous Spring/Summer season. This is the national standard. A player may choose to play up a level from their eligible age but cannot play down a level unless they qualify for a recognized grade exception. Grade exceptions are only applicable to baseball.
***USE THE AGE CALCULATOR BELOW TO DETERMINE THE CORRECT PLAYING AGE FOR THE SEASON.***
1) League Game Rescheduling- If you have a conflict with a game, you have the following options: 1) find another team that plays the team you have a conflict with and switch dates with that team (If games are agreed to be switched, email EYSA with details); or 2) First, find an open timeslot on your age appropriate field. Second, contact the opposing coach and get their agreement to move the game to the new date and time. 3) If they agree to move the game, contact us with the new date and time for confirmation of the move. The move is not approved until it is approved and booked through EYSA. If option 1 or 2 is not successfully completed, the game will be played as scheduled. If you are unable to make the game, it will be considered a forfeit with the non-forfeiting team receiving an 8-0 win. All rules pertaining to forfeits will be applicable.
It is the rescheduling coaches responsibility to find an open time on an age appropriate field.
NOTE: Any schedule changes made may not reflect the change in the sports engine app. However, they will be shown correctly on the website. If you have/had a schedule change, please notify parents to go directly to the website to see the schedule update.
