SMYO BASEBALL

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.

Safety

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.  Spring Date TBD

   

Practice Locations

6U, 8U, 10U, 14U & 16U practice at SMYO and at local schools in Charles County.  The school fields are permitted for use.  Your coach has 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!

 

Game Locations for Baseball : Spring TBD

 

Schedules - Ready the week of the first game.  

 

Uniforms - Coaches will give out uniforms prior to the first game

First Baseball Games - Spring Dates TBD

 

Season Ends - Spring Dates TBD

Team Pictures - Spring Dates TBD

If you have any questions or concerns during the season, please talk to your Coach first.  If you do not get the issue resolved, contact the Baseball Commissioner at smyobaseball@gmail.com . Our goal is for everyone to enjoy playing sports.  One key way for us to succeed is through Open Communication.

Thank you for choosing SMYO (www.smyo.org) and we hope you and your player have a great season!
