T-BALL & ROOKIE BALL - NOW FULL
The T-Ball and Rookie Ball series are now full. At this time, we are no longer accepting names for our wait list. 

This for players born in 2017 & 2018 (T-Ball) and 2015 & 2016 (Rookie Ball.)


NYBA REFUND POLICY: Any request for cancellation of registration prior to the season start and before an age division is full will be honoured minus an administration fee ($10 for T-ball; $20 for other age divisions).

At the discretion of the North York Baseball registrar a refund will not be issued for the following reasons:

  • the season has started
  • an age division is full and any children on a wait list are no longer available to fill the vacancy.

All refund requests should be direct to Paul Chamberlain pchamp@sympatico.ca. 


PLAYING SEASON: The regular playing season for all divisions will begin the week of May 13th.

  • The T-ball season will run to the third week of August (August 20th) and games will run from 6:30PM to 7:45PM each week.
  • All other divisions will end the season with Championship games involving all teams, played with week of August 26-28th.
  • Practice Sessions: The Rookie Ball and Mosquito seasons will start with two practice weeks. The PeeWee division will have practice sessions during the first week only.

    Important: If your child will miss more than 3 weeks during the summer due to cottage stays, overnight camp or travel plans, please do not register for NYBA house league. Parents who want to register their players for spring baseball (ie. just until June) may want to check out the various spring camps offered by True North Sports Camps. 


GAMES & PRACTICES: Each team plays one game per week at Bond Park in North York. From time-to-time, coaches in Rookie Ball to Bantam may want to add an extra weekend practice using available diamond time. Every effort is made to keep the teams at the same skill level.


PLAYERS BORN IN 2019: The NYBA T-Ball program is for players born in 2017 and 2018. There are a few spots for underage players. If you are interested please reach out to Paul Chamberlain, Registrar. Otherwise, we recommend that parents consider the courses and workshops offered by True North Sports Camps. TNSC offers weekly courses, March break camps and summer camp at Bond Park.


UNIFORMS: As part of the registration fee, NYBA provides hats, pants and team jerseys - bats and catcher's equipment are part of the team's equipment. Players are required to have their own gloves. For the younger children we strongly recommend that parents not invest a lot of money in a beginner's glove.

Batting helmets are required for all children. Parents will have the option of using a helmet they may already own or purchasing a new one through North York Baseball at a cost of $40, which is what we are charged by our supplier.


SKILLS CLINICS: The week before the season starts, NYBA hopes to offer skills clinics for players in the Rookie and Mosquito divisions. They will be free of charge and invitations for players to sign-up will be sent out in early April.

GIRLS BASEBALL: In an effort to 'even the playing field' North York Baseball is encouraging girls ageds 6 to 16 to register for this year's House League program. In addition to their regular games there will be skills clinics scheduled monthly on some weekends during the seasons to help girls improve their skills. All girls welcome. No additional sign-up required.


PARENT VOLUNTEERS: North York Baseball Association is always looking for parent volunteers for coaching positions. Volunteering occurs during registration. Please offer. We cannot run our program without enough coaches. Senior high school students are eligible to coach and can receive credit for volunteer hours.

We look forward to having your family become part of the North York Baseball Association!

Play Ball!
