Lehigh Valley League - Players registering to try out for the highly competitive travel teams must use the LEHIGH VALLEY LEAGUE registration links ($105 registration fee). Only players registering for Lehigh Valley League (LVL) will be allowed to try out for an LVL travel team.
Parkland League - For Parkland League registrations ($95 registration fee), players may either play for the National League level (teams are selected by a draft process following a coaches clinic - no tryouts required) or try out for the more competitive American League level (tryouts will include any player registered for the Parkland League who wishes to try out, as well as any player who registered for the Lehigh Valley League and who was not selected for an LVL team).
For the benefit of all the SPYA kids who are playing baseball this spring, ALL families must either volunteer for 5 or more hours OR pay an additional $50 in place of volunteering.
*SPYA Baseball policy only allows a child to "play-up" a level under specific circumstances and with the approval of the baseball commissioner. Any player requesting to play-up must have an in-season birth date (May-June-July), must have a recommendation from a previous coach, and must have previously played for SPYA. For developmental and safety reasons, no child will be considered without meeting these requirements.
*Players must attend tryouts to be selected for the Lehigh Valley League (LVL) Teams
**The Parkland Youth League (PYL) is divided into 2 levels. The more competitive level (American League - AL) requires players to try out. The less competitive level (National League - NL) DOES NOT require players to tryout.
The Mission of the South Parkland Baseball Program is to make available within the community of Parkland an effectively organized and implemented youth baseball program in which each participant can obtain a positive, competitive, and rewarding developmental and participatory experience in the game of baseball.
