Fall baseball 2021



Here is some information about Fall baseball:


Our Fall Programs will begin on Sunday August 29th (Connie Mack the weekend after Labor Day) and conclude on Sunday November 7th. Registration will close for our fall programs on Friday August 13th. While GYAC has always been as accommodating as possible we will be limiting roster sizes once registration closes across all age groups.

Our Fall Baseball Program will utilize a player’s age as of May 1st, 2021 (or the same age they were for our spring programs). Fall teams in each of our divisions will be filled on a first come/first serve basis and dependent upon volunteer coaches at each program level. During our fall season we allow players the option to “move‐up” to the level they will participate in during our 2022 spring season or “play again” based upon ability level and comfort in the program they played this spring.

The following programs will be offered for the Fall:

Quick Ball – (ages 4,5 and optional for 6) – Sessions consisting of 30 minutes of instruction and a 30 minute game.

Jr. Farm –
(ages 6, 7 and optional for 8) – Machine pitch with potential for coach pitch as the year progresses.

Farm –
(ages 8, 9 and optional for 10) – Kid pitch games played on 46/60 fields at Glenside Weldon.

Majors –
(ages 10, 11 and optional for 12) – Games played on 50/70 fields with most at SPS.

Connie Mack (12‐13) –
(ages 12 and 13) – Saturday and Sunday games played on 60/90 fields. Connie Mack will require travel for most if not all games throughout Bucks/Montgomery County.

Connie Mack (14‐15) –
(ages 14 and 15) ‐ Saturday and Sunday games played on 60/90 fields. Connie Mack will require travel for most if not all games throughout Bucks/Montgomery County.


Additional Fall Baseball Notes:
 - Each participant in our Fall Program will receive a 2021 GYAC Fall Baseball Shirt & Hat.

 - All Quickball, Jr. Farm and Farm games will tentatively be scheduled on Sundays. Some Majors games may be played on Fridays or Saturdays, but the majority should be on Sundays. Connie Mack games are played on both Saturday and Sundays. If Sunday games are rained out we may make-up games on Saturday afternoons.

 -As we have done in the past few years, some fall games in our Jr. Farm, Farm and Majors programs may be played
against teams outside of GYAC and could involve minimal travel (5 to 10 minutes).

- Teams will be formed the end of August following the close of registration. The amount of teams we have in the fall will be based upon both our registration numbers along with sufficient volunteer coaches. The more volunteer coaches we have the greater number of teams we can support.

Registration will close on Friday August 13th
Register TODAY if you want to PLAY.


Travel Baseball tryouts


 

Our registration is now open for any players interested in trying out for our 2021 Glenside Travel Baseball teams.

In order to tryout for one of our 2021 Glenside Travel Baseball teams you must be registered in advance of attending a tryout. All players attending our tryouts will receive a tryout jersey they can keep. Registration can be done by visiting www.gyac.org

Our various 2021 travel teams are based upon a player's age as of May 1st, 2021. To participate in Glenside Travel Baseball you do not have to live in Glenside, but simply either go to school or live within the our boundaries as designated by Cal Ripken Baseball which extend well beyond the immediate Glenside area. If you have any questions regarding if you are within our boundaries please reach out to our Travel Baseball Coordinator (Marvin Overton) at [email protected]

We will be confirming tryout dates to all that register within the next week, but our anticipation is to begin our 9U through 12U tryouts in the next 2 weeks so we can take advantage of holding these outdoors. We plan on holding 2 tryouts for each age group to assist in accommodating everyone's schedules and provide our evaluators ample opportunity to make the best decisions possible on the formation of our teams.

Tentative Tryout Schedule:
8U - January 2021 and will also include 3 free clinics to all interested in trying out
9U - 12U - October 2020 (2 tryouts per age group)
13U and 14/15U - November 2020 with the possibility of holding indoors

Additional Notes:
- All of our Glenside Travel teams will compete in the Suburban Travel Baseball League which is comprised of teams in Bucks and Montgomery Counties. 
- Indoor practices will begin in January 2021 with the games beginning in April 2021 on Fridays and/or Sundays
- If we have sufficient interest, coaching and player ability we can support multiple teams at any of our age groups from 8U through 14/15U

Thank you in advance for your interest in Glenside Travel Baseball.



Spring baseball 2021




The following programs will be offered for the Spring:

The following divisions will play all of their games at Glenside Weldon on Saturdays starting in April and ending in June:

Quick Ball - As the first local organization to introduce Quickball, GYAC we will once again be offering this introductory program into baseball and softball for both boys and girls ages 4 through 6. Quickball teaches all diamond skills in a more active, engaging way. Anyone can play and teamwork is emphasized on all levels. Each player gets to try for a single, double, triple, and home run in every game! Scoring also occurs on both offense and defense and anyone can succeed regardless of skill level. Each session will be divided into a weekly skill development portion and then an actual game. Quickball will be played each Saturday at Glenside Weldon. Ages: Quick Ball (4/5/6)

Rookie (formerly T-Ball) – We will have a Rookie league for boy’s age 6 who participated in Quickball or T-Ball in the past. The teams will focus on further developing proper hitting, throwing and fielding skills and start preparing players with a better understanding of the fundamentals and rules of the baseball. Teams will be kept smaller in size to provide as much individual attention as possible. Rookie teams will practice one night per week with a Saturday game. Teams will feature college replica shirts and hats. Ages: Rookies (6/7)

Junior Farm Baseball  – Our Junior Farm division is for boys who are 7 and 8 years of age. The season will include a transition from hitting balls from a pitching machine to coach pitch. While scoring is not kept in this league outs will now be recorded as we transition closer to standard baseball rules and play. Jr. Farm teams will practice one night per week with a Saturday game. Teams will feature minor league replica uniforms. Ages: Jr. Farm (7/8)

Farm Baseball  – Our Farm division is for boys who are 9 and 10 years of age and played on 60 foot bases. The rules are slightly modified from traditional baseball, but players do the pitching and stealing and bunting are allowed. Official umpires are utilized and scoring is kept in Farm with the season culminating in a fun playoff and championship. All Farm teams make the playoffs! Farm teams will practice one night per week with a Saturday game. Teams will feature major league replica uniforms. Ages: Farm (9/10)

Majors Baseball  – Our Majors division is for boys who are 11 and 12 years of age and played on 70 foot bases. Games are played with official Cal Ripken organization rules. The Major’s season will culminate with a playoff and championship in which all teams will qualify for. Major teams will have a practice session during the week with a Saturday game. Ages: Majors (11/12)

ICBBL League  – For players 13-15 we will again be participating in the Inter Community Baseball League which will feature games against other local organizations in the surrounding Glenside area.
