DYB NEWS

Effective immediately Dragon Youth Baseball is changing from the current PONY baseball league format:  Shetland, Pinto, and Mustang, etc. into the more common “And Under” format e.g. 6U, 7U, 8U, etc. for all leagues dropping PONY designations.  Additionally, there will be some rule modifications accompanying these changes to better promote appropriate skill growth for all players. 

We are also modifying DYB Program names to more appropriately depict their designed goals:

  • Recreation Program (formerly Cactus): continues to focus on development of beginning to intermediate players.  The Program's focus is to introduce baseball to all players, focus on core skill development, foundational baseball rules and exposure to multiple positions.  Coaches promote a learning environment and are bound by the DYB rules regarding player positioning allowing players to learn multiple positions.
    • All games are played at Bicentennial Park against other Dragon Youth Baseball teams.  Teams can expect to play 1-2 games per week with 1-2 practices. 
    • We expect that 70-80% of our players will continue to participate in this program.

       

  • Premier Program (formerly Grapefruit): continues to focus on intermediate to advanced players.  The Premier Program builds on the fundamentals learned in the Recreational Program with a focus on advanced core skills and baseball rules and strategy.  Coaches promote a learning environment and are bound by the DYB rules regarding player positioning allowing players to learn multiple positions.
    • Premier teams are local travel teams playing half of their games at locations other than Bicentennial Park such as Grapevine, Coppell, Colleyville, Keller, Trophy Club, etc.  These teams can expect to play 1-2 games per week, generally doubleheader format with 1-2 practices.  *note:  DYB provides the same number of practice options for Recreation and Premier programs however Premier teams often find alternative options for additional repetitions.
    • We expect that 20% of our players will continue to participate in this program.
  • Summer All Star Program:  remains unchanged and is focused on introduction to tournament play.  The season runs from mid-May through the end of June with 4-5 tournaments.  Each tournament teams play 2 pool games then on Sunday single elimination (up to 4 games).  Coaches are required to promote a learning environment focused on advanced skills and baseball strategies.  They are not required to rotate players during All Star competition. 
    • We expect that 15% of our players will continue to participate in this program.

New league breakdown, distances remain the same:

  • 4U - BlastBall format (recreation only)
  • 5U - tee ball (recreation only)
  • 6U - tee ball (recreation and premier)
  • 7U - coach pitch 60' bases (recreation and premier)
