Note: TB/CP levels – Current bats labeled for use with TeeBalls can still be used however there must be a USA Baseball sticker placed on the bat. See the link above for details on how to acquire one of the stickers. If the bat does not say for use with TeeBalls, then the bat is illegal regardless of having a sticker or not.. It must be replaced with a new conforming bat. Any questions please don’t hesitate to ask.

Coach Evaluations

It is that time of the year again as the Fall Baseball season wraps up, the SYA Baseball Board of Directors would like to solicit your feedback on the coaches from this season, including the travel coaches. This evaluation form provides valuable feedback to the league on its selection process as well as to the coaches on what they have done right and where they need to improve.

Please take a few minutes while this information is still fresh in your mind from the season to provide this feedback. We hope that you take this opportunity to be heard. This may be anonymous feedback, if you choose not to provide your name.

Thanks to everyone who has submitted an evaluation. The league will be reviewing these over the the coming weeks, months and providing feedback as necessary. For those who have yet to submit an evaluation, time still remains for your input into your SYA Little League and SYA Travel programs.

2017 Accenture Day of Service

On October 9, 2017, nearly two dozen Accenture employees based in Arlington, VA volunteered their time on a very warm Fall day to aid the Centreville community.  The group completed numerous field maintenance activities at a sports complex used by hundreds of Southwestern Youth Association players for Little League baseball games and practices.  Their efforts have further enhanced the safety and use of this complex that is used on a regular basis by the children of our community for healthy activity, learning about the value of teamwork, and becoming good citizens.

Thank you to Accenture and their workforce for embodying these values and enriching our community.

Parking – Cub Run and All Fields

While we all recognize that parking at Cub Run can be tough to come by at times, we want to make sure that all our players and their families are safe when leaving their cars and making their way to the fields. It has come to our attention that there have been some number of incidents where cars are being parked illegally, often ignoring posted signs, making crossing streets/intersections very dangerous. This includes parking illegally in the school parking lots. Please heed all signage and consider the players, families, and the local residents in your choice for parking as there is always the school lot (other side of the building) – which is often less than half full. We expect the police to be patrolling this area more frequently because of complaints. Here is a general summary of Fairfax County parking regulations:

Please heed this warning as well as street posting. All these regulations apply to all our fields.
