Coed T-Ball

This instructional league for 4-6 year olds teaches the basic fundamentals of hitting, fielding and throwing in a non-competitive game environment. Practices are held once a week at the coaches discretion and games will be played one time weekly at the Byron Sports Complex. All players will receive a jersey and a trophy. Volunteer coaches are always needed, so if you are interested please indicate it on your child's registration form. Participants must sign up by Tuesday, May 22nd to be guaranteed a spot in the program.


Coed Coach Pitch

This instructional league for 6-8 year olds builds upon the basic hitting, fielding, and throwing fundamentals taught in t-ball and serves as a progressive step between t-ball and baseball. Players will play multiple positions and learn the rules of the game. The league will have a non-competitive regular season schedule and end with a competitive season ending tournament. Practices are held once per week and games will be played at the Byron Sports Complex. All players receive a jersey and medal.


Youth Players Ages 6 & 8

All youth players grow and develop at different rates. For this reason, we allow parents of 6 & 8 year olds to choose which league they fit best in. Generally, players should play at least one year of t-ball before moving to coach pitch and two years of coach pitch before moving to the minor league. If you are unsure of which league to put your child in, please contact Nick Warrner at 815-234-6218 or nwarrner@byronparks.org.
