Skills Evaluation

LYB will be hosting a skills evaluation session for 4th grade softball and 2nd grade baseball next Sunday, April 18th at Abnet Field. Skills evaluations for softball will start at 2:00 p.m.  Skills evaluation for baseball will start at 3:15 p.m.  

There will be stations available for hitting, fielding, pop fly's and running bases.  Skills evaluation is needed to help with rostering of teams.   Everyone will be placed on a team.   Please make sure your child brings their own glove, helmet, bat, water bottle and mask. Masks will need to be worn. 

Any questions, please contact an LYB board member.  Thank you! 

Seven Rivers Athletic Association

LYB is excited to announce that we are moving to the newly created Seven Rivers Athletic Association (SRAA).  SRAA will replace the Coulee Region Sports League (CRSL).  SRAA will operate through the Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater La Crosse. Through this alliance, SRAA & Boys & Girls Club will be able to open the lines of communication with other programs that will improve the quality of youth baseball & softball in our area for years to come.  SRAA will provide online scheduling of programs & teams throughout the full league season.

SRAA was created to provide a professional youth league experience that ensures fair competition for all different team skill levels.  SRAA will be available for community teams from the Coulee Region, Southeast Minnesota & Northeast Iowa.  The changes to this new league should be seamless.  The majority of the rules are the same as CRSL.  Nothing will change with the registration process; you will still register your child through LYB.

One of the biggest changes is the creation of an 8U division for baseball and softball.  Baseball player’s age is determined by the date of April 30, 2021.  Softball player’s age is determined by the date of January 1, 2021.

We are asking for everyone's help to get the word out about the 8U division for baseball and softball.  Registration for 8U only will still be open after the March 31 registration deadline until team(s) are filled.
