Youth Baseball, Softball and Tee-ball

The YMCA offers baseball, softball and tee-ball. Depending on age and location, teams may be coach pitch, machine pitch or off the tee, and practices and game schedules may vary.

YMCA youth sports provide opportunities for camaraderie, building skills and character development. We aim to keep kids moving and focus on their health and well-being. 


Teams are formed based on ages U5 - U13. See below for details and locations. Please refer to our age chart to determine your child's age group league.


Players must have a glove to play. Each player receives a team jersey and hat.
