New Update On 2020 Season

Last night the Board of Directors reached the difficult conclusion to cancel the 2020 JCYS season.  While we remain unanimous in our belief that Baseball and Softball are an important part of our everyday lives and the reopening of New York there were some hurdles that we don't know if we can fully overcome given the time restrictions we are working with and some of the lingering uncertainty.  

With that said we are excited to announce several options for our kids to Play Ball this season.  We will be putting forth a plan over the next 10-14 days for a summer instructional program by division.  It is our belief that it continues to be important to provide opportunities for all kids to play and we hope to have a sandlot/instructional/scrimmage format for players who wish to participate beginning in mid-July.  We are also in the process of reviewing options for the possibility of a fall season.

We ask that you complete this final brief survey, this is extremely important for us to use in our planning.  If you've already completed one of the other surveys we still kindly ask you to do this one.

For our players looking for an increased competition level, we will be providing a travel baseball option through the Greater Hudson Valley Baseball League (GHVBL) for 13U, 12U, 11U, 10U, 9U and 8U (provided we have the numbers to place teams).  Please understand our travel teams are a higher level of competition with a greater time commitment (teams may play 3-5 games a week).  Selection for a team is not guaranteed, each player must tryout, and cuts will be made depending on the number of players.  In addition, travel teams are typically in the $250 and up range for a season.  If you have any questions on either travel or JCYS summer plans please e-mail [email protected]

For those who wish to opt-out, we are working to process your refunds and hope to have all refunds completed by the end of June but depending on the speed of responding to our survey it could spill into July.  We will not roll over any money to 2021, all players (with the exception of travel players) will be refunded minus the $3 processing fee and any credit card processing fees incurred by JCYS.  If you choose to participate in the summer JCYS clinics we will withhold $50 and you will be refunded the remainder minus the above-mentioned fees.

Thank you again for all your support.  We continue to look forward to finding ways to safely Play Ball!
