Welcome to SMYO's Baseball Program!


Please remember our coaches and all SMYO Board Members are volunteers.  They've agreed to help provide a fun and safe place for your child to learn and play baseball.  Our coaches are taught to solicit parents to help out during games and practices.  Please help them when you can and it will be appreciated.


Our priority at SMYO is to have a safe place for our children to learn and play sports.  If you see something wrong, say or do something.  Keep in mind that the woods have dangerous things such as snakes, ticks, and wild animals (we have seen a Fox).  Please watch your children play around the fields and at the playground.  We also remind everyone of the Rules for the SMYO fields:  No Pets, No Alcohol, No Bare Feet, No Cursing, and ASOLUTELY No Violence (threats or physical violence).


Equipment & Uniforms

Each player must have a glove, cleats, and plenty of water or Gatorade.  SMYO provides game jersey, hats and socks.  These are mandatory uniforms for all games.


Skills Nights

Skills nights will be incorporated into the game schedule for each age group. These training sessions will emphasize on the fundamentals of baseball.  These sessions will be FREE and open to anyone who wants extra time on the field working with different coaches. 





SMYO Field Prep

All parents, players and coaches are urged to help out.  Saturday, Aug 29th,  9AM until ?? completed More Information to follow.


Practice Locations

6U, 8U, 10U, 14U & 16U will practice at SMYO and at local schools in Charles County.  The school fields are permitted for use.  Your coach will have a permit provided by SMYO for these facilities.  So, make sure you know where your practices are to be held.  The coaches will give out this information.


SMYO Fields

Please monitor your children for safety while sitting, playing or enjoying our fields.  FOUL BALLS do leave the fields of play.  This can be painful if you are not paying attention.  Please BE ALERT!

I try every season to see each team play a game.  If you have any questions or concerns during the season, please talk to your Coach first.  If you do not get the issue resolved, Jodi Brill is your Baseball Commissioner.  She can be reached at .    If you feel the issue was not resolved, you can email our President, Kris Parnes at or you can text her at 202-607-9540.  Our goal is for everyone to enjoy playing sports.  One key way for us to succeed is through Open Communication.
