It is that time of the year again as the Spring 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.

Charlie Bond has been selected to umpire at the 2017 Little League Junior World Series in Taylor Michigan later this summer. No doubt a testament to his dedication to SYA Little League as a volunteer umpire throughout the years. Congratulations Charlie!

Looking to not spend hundreds on a new bat? Still trying to figure out what to do as your old bat is no longer legal or your player has outgrown their existing bat? SYA Little League is maintaining a listing of bats folks have for sale. Check out the Bats For Sale page for details and listings.
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.
