What levels of play are offered?
The Southlake Baseball Association offers multiple programs and levels of play for children ages 4 to 17. Our leagues provide opportunities for both beginners and advanced players. The Programs offered are:
Where possible based on participation numbers we play "age pure" which means each league is comprised of players of the same age or younger e.g. 9U is 9 and under. Please see our baseball age key for more information.
Recreation and Premier Teams:
A child’s “baseball age” is determined based on his or her age on May 1st-April 30th each year. Players are not permitted to play above or below their “Baseball Age” without prior approval by the League Commissioner. If you wish to pursue approval for a different league please attend the correct coach look based on the player’s baseball age and discuss it with the commissioner. Please keep in mind that this determination is based on player safety and exceptions are rare.
The official Age Key can be found on our FAQ page under Baseball Age. DYB follows "traditional" ages and is not an "and under" association.
