BASEBALL & SOFTBALL


  • fall | Grades 4-6

    This IN-HOUSE program will feature one practice per week and game(s) on Sunday afternoons. Fall will offer a laid-back, low commitment approach allowing players to play other sports while still getting their swings in. After the registration deadline, teams will be created by ORYA and your baseball AG. Your team assignment and uniform order link will then be emailed to you. The cost of the uniform shirt IS included in your player fee but each family will need to order so sizing is accurate. Old, new-stock, hats will be used to keep costs down. We are expecting 3 to 4 teams and each will play at least one game per Sunday on scheduled game days. Games will start at 1:00pm or later on Sundays. Your practice night will be dependent on when your volunteer coach can schedule them.

    This program’s success is dependent on receiving a minimum number of 30 players and having enough volunteer coaches! If we do not have enough players or coaches this program may not work out. Please let us know if you can head or assistant coach this fall!

  • fall | Grades 6-8

    We are expecting 1 or 2 teams and they will play in the Seacoast Fall Baseball League (www.sfbl.us). Rosters will be limited to 14 players and will be based on first come, first served basis. If 22 players register, we’ll officially register 2 teams and so on. To recap: One team = 11-14 players, two teams = 22-32 players, 3 teams is any above 33. Again, spots are based on time of registration. Note this age group will play on a 90ft base path – 6th graders that register should consider which field size is right for them.

    Even with league play, this fall will offer a laid-back, low commitment approach allowing players to play other sports while still getting their swings in. After the registration deadline, total number of registrations will determine how many teams we have. If more than one team is required, your baseball AG will create them as evenly as possible but without an evaluation/tryout. Games are scheduled by the SFBL and will be played either home or away on Saturdays. All games are double headers and the season will be 6 or 7 weekends as outlined on the SFBL website.

    Uniforms will feature a simple navy blue shirt and hat with numbers assigned for you. If you have this shirt and hat from a previous team or season you do not need to order a new one! Uniform ordering links will be sent following the reg. deadline. Since not all players will need to purchase a new uniform it is NOT included in your player fee. Shirt and hat will total $27.

    This program’s success is dependent on having enough volunteer coaches! If we do not have enough coaches step forward this program may not work out. Please let us know if you can head or assistant coach this fall!

  • fall | High school jv

    We are expecting 1 teams at this age group and they will play in the Seacoast Fall Baseball League (www.sfbl.us). The roster will be limited to 14 players and will be based on first come, first served basis. However, if we do get to 22 players we will register a second team.

    Even with league play, this fall will offer a laid-back, low commitment approach allowing players to play other sports while still getting their swings in. After the registration deadline, total number of registrations will determine how many teams we have. If more than one team is required, your baseball AG will create them as evenly as possible but without an evaluation/tryout. Games are scheduled by the SFBL and will be played either home or away on Sundays. All games are double headers and the season will be 6 or 7 weekends as outlined on the SFBL website.

    This team(s) will utilize the stock ORYA Babe-Ruth uniforms. A hat will be required but will be the same as this year’s Babe Ruth hat – you do not need to order a new one if you have one from the season! A link to order a hat (if needed) will be sent following the registration deadline. Since not all players will need to purchase a new hat it is NOT included in your player fee.

    This program’s success is dependent on having enough volunteer coaches! If we do not have enough coaches step forward this program may not work out. Please let us know if you can head or assistant coach this fall!

  • Why is there a recreational fee difference between each town?

    When ORYA receives funding from the communities we serve, it directly subsidizes the participation of our in-house, recreational programs for members of that specific community. The differences between each residency-rate is a direct reflection of the expected or actual funding from each community in the budgeted year. If one community has a lower player fee, it means that community has chosen to reduce your participation fee in youth, recreational athletic programs. Travel-based programs are not subsidized by town funding.
