Please read the Return to Practice update below.
We appreciate your patience as we work through the recent announcement by Governor Abbott regarding the allowance of full team practices on 5/31 and games on 6/15. We have been working with the City of Southlake and have approval to resume activities as we see safe to do so. We have been working behind the scenes to determine a safe and effective way to get kids back out on the fields as they want to. At this point, we will not be hosting games at Bicentennial Park this summer but do believe we have another good option for Spring members looking to play. We have asked out Spring coaches to reach out to their current teams to determine is summer independent tournaments are an option for the team if your teams are 7U or older. If your team decides not to play but a player would like to commit to playing in tournaments, we will work to find a team. We are also opening practice fields for organized team practices for 5U and up if coaches are able to facilitate those practices.
Please feel free to reach out directly to your coach or commissioners below for more information. We are also working diligently to make the necessary modifications to Bicentennial Park as well as determining the proper processes to implement to make sure we have Fall baseball as scheduled. We will release that information as it becomes finalized.

As we continue to monitor the COVID-19 pandemic, Dragon Youth Baseball has decided to cancel the 2020 Spring Recreational and Premier League seasons. The safety of DYB players, coaches, families, fans, and umpires always has, and always will, outweigh all other considerations. We know everyone wants to play and we pledge do everything we can to get our players back on the fields as soon as it is safe to do so.
Dragon Youth Baseball will process a partial refund of League Fees to its 2020 Spring Recreational and Premier League players. None of our operating costs such as umpires, equipment, uniforms, registration, administrative and other fees for our approximately 600 players can be refunded to DYB. However, we recognize this is a difficult time for everyone. Therefore, to help our DYB families, we are absorbing as many of our operating costs as possible and will refund payments as indicated below. We are currently working with our payments processing vendor and will notify everyone as to when you can expect refunds applied to the credit card used at registration.
We hope this helps you in some small way as we continue to find our way through this challenging time. We will continue to monitor the guidance from the CDC, local and state leaders as well as Carroll ISD as we evaluate the possibility of offering a Recreational League this summer. As always, we sincerely appreciate our partnership with the City of Southlake and its willingness to make its fields available this coming summer should a summer league become a viable and safe option.
We sympathize with everyone who has been affected by this virus and are immensely thankful for those working to combat it. We encourage everyone to put your family’s needs first and follow local guidelines to protect themselves and our community.
Refunds are actively being processed by our vendor. We expect all refunds to be issued no later than June 15th.
