About SYC Little League


How we got here

In the fall of 2015 SYC Baseball elected to charter with Little League. This decision was made after careful consideration and was voted upon by nearly thirty coaches, SYC Baseball Board members and SYC Youth Club officers, with 90% in favor of Little League affiliation. Each person voting had the opportunity to attend a meeting, hear a presentation and participate in a lengthy question-and-answer session with the Administrator for Pennsylvania District 14 Little League. Ultimately, a significant majority of voters felt that Little League had a great deal to offer the players and families of SYC Baseball and decided that affiliation would best serve the greatest number of families in our community.

The advantages of Little League

  • Focus on grouping players by skill level, not just age or grade, which allows them to be more successful on the field

  • Opportunities for interlock play with surrounding Little Leagues, combining the best features of hometown and travel baseball

  • Access to the world-renowned Little League International Tournament in which teams compete for a chance to play in the Little League Baseball World Series in Williamsport, PA

  • Additional opportunities for tournament play, such the District 14 Clarence Boyd Tournament which is held in mid-July

  • Access to a wealth of training materials and classes for our coaches, including the Positive Coaching Alliance training (now mandatory for all SYC coaches) and Little League University online training

  • The pride which stems from being a part of the largest and best-known youth sports organization in the world
