Roswell Youth Baseball Association: Welcome

WELCOME TO THE ROSWELL YOUTH BASEBALL WEBSITE !!!

The Structure of Roswell Youth Baseball - 4 Levels

"Instructional Baseball"   is offered as a class and not a league, every fall season for ages 4-6.  Professional instructors will teach the very basic fundamentals of the game during each class. The length of this program is apprx 8 weeks.  Competition Level (Low) 

"Recreational Baseball"  our most popular and comprehensive is offered every fall (ages 7-18) and every spring (ages 5-18).  These leagues welcome any variety of skill levels from beginner to experienced and last apprx 2-3 months with a tournament to wrap up the season (spring only).  Every player that is registered on time is permitted to play. Competition Level (Moderate) 

"Select Baseball"  is offered every spring season for ages 9-12.  Players have to tryout and make one of the teams to play in this program.  This league will play more games than the recreational league including a few games against another local park plus a tournament to wrap up the season.  Competition Level (High)

 "Travel Baseball"  our highest level of baseball, is offered for ages 10-14.  Every late July or early August, tryouts are held and players have to make one of the teams to play in this program.  Teams will have limited practices/games during the fall season (depending on coach and team) with the spring season beginning in February and lasting through June.  This league will play apprx 20-25 games on home fields and will also travel to several other Atlanta area locations for away games.  Competition Level (Highest)

RYBA Booster Association...what is it and what do they do? 

The Roswell Youth Baseball Association is an affiliate of the Roswell Recreation & Parks Department and is the advisory board for the betterment of our program. We hope to have much of the valuable information that is distributed to all teams from the staff at Hembree Park on this site. It is the mission of the RYBA to provide a safe, healthy, and enjoyable environment while learning to play baseball, with an emphasis on the development of each child into a better person. The fundamentals of fair play, accept responsibility, and attack life with a positive attitude. We believe the true measure of the success of our organization is the number of children who come back and play again in the following seasons.

The RYBA will be having its BOARD meetings on the first Monday of every month (excluding holidays) @ 6:30PM @ Hembree Park.
