New this year! Byron Park District competitive leagues for 8-14 year olds continue to build upon fundamentals. Players register as individuals and teams are formed through a draft process. There are no team/player requests allowed in these leagues. All games will be played at the Byron Sports Complex. Volunteer coaches are always needed! If you are interested in becoming a volunteer coach contact our Superintendent of Recreation, Nick Warrner at 815-234-6218 or email@example.com.
Team Rosters:Team Rosters will be created through a coach draft process. Non- resident players are welcome to register. However, all non-resident players will be included in the draft process because we make every effort to ensure a competitively balanced league. Depending on registration numbers at each level, we may create multiple draft pools based on participant addresses, with the intention of creating teams in which the majority of players are from the same town. Final registration numbers will dictate draft pools and there is no guarantee this will allow for even player distribution, therefore some teams may have more players than others. Please understand that this year presents some unique challenges and there may not be a perfect solution for all situations but we will make every effort to provide a positive experience for all players.
The Byron Park District will be following all guidelines established by Governor Pritzker's Restore Illinois Plan. As these guidelines are evolving, Byron Park District staff will be in communication with coaches to ensure that the guidelines are being followed. At this time, we do not anticipate that face coverings will be required in Phase 4 when the season begins. Fan attendance at games will most likely be limited to 4 fans per player and seating will be located in the outfield area on most of our fields in order to provide additional dugout space for the players.
