Welcome to St. Francis Youth Baseball Association's (SFYBA's) website.  SFYBA is committed to providing a quality baseball experience to the youth baseball players (Age 9-14) of St. Francis Area Schools ISD #15.

What Age Level Should I Register For?

The official age cut-off date is May 1st. For example, to play on a 12U team in 2019, the player must be 12 years or under on May 1, 2019.  However, SFYBA recommends each player play with his/her grade (if age eligible) even if their birthday falls on or after the cut-off date. For example, if you are a 6th grader and your 12th birthday is May 15th, you would be eligible to play 11U but we would recommend you play 12U because that is primarily where all 6th graders will play.

SFYBA fields a team or teams at ages 10U-14U.  We may also field a 9U team.  If not, we will evaluate 9U players for a spot on 10U teams.  8U/2nd grade players are allowed to register and try-out, but note that SFYBA does not field an 8U travelling team.  8U players will be evaluated for spots on a 9U or 10U team.

If a player plays at 9U or 10U as a 2nd or 3rd grader (plays up), SFYBA wants them to return to their grade level team the following year, meaning they will play two years at an age level.
