For 2017, Boys Baseball is offered for Grades 4 and 5. No prior experience is required. Sign-ups are in February. The season runs from April-June.
Typically teams are separated by grade and each grade will have one team. There are no tryouts held.
Each team typically plays 10 regular season games either in the CYO or Cincinnati Western Baseball Conference league. Regular season CYO games for all grades are held on Sunday, with CWBC games held during the week and on Saturdays. These games are scheduled between the coaches of both teams and need to be completed before a certain time during the season to count towards the end of season tournament. Typically, games are held at the home team’s field. At the end of the regular season, a CYO city tournament is typically held for the top two teams from each division. This is usually held in the end of May. Tournaments for CWBC are held by team and are not part of the normal schedul
Practices vary by coach but you can expect typically two practices each week. Practices may be held Monday thru Saturday. Practices may start as early as 4pm and end as late as 8pm. Practices are held at the fields chosen by the coach.
The archdiocese requires 2 adults to be at every practice. Therefore, we attempt to place 2 coaches per team. The SBAA asks for volunteers from our parent community, the parish community, alumni, etc… Every attempt is made to get the best coaches for every team.
In grades 3-5, parent coaches are permitted to coach any team. In grades 6-8, the A team head coach will not be a parent. B teams may have parents as the coaches. If you are interested in volunteering to coach, please contact the SBAA at email@example.com.
