Eligibility - All students in Saint Joseph/Saint Robert School, Saint Joseph or Saint Robert Prep program in Grades 5 through 8.
Programs - Baseball is open for boys only.
Please note that in the past, we have tried to run teams "grade pure". However, if we have an insufficient of registrants in a particular grade area, we may look to combine grade levels.
Season - The Spring Baseball Season is from late March until end of May. There is an opportunity at the varsity level to participate in Archdiocesean Playoffs which could extend into June.
Tournaments – There are no tournaments played for CYO Baseball.
Uniforms – We are using uniforms from previous years in an effort to control our cost. We do purchase new uniforms as needed. We will do our best to honor all size requests made at registration. Uniforms must be returned at the end of the season. Each player receives an uniform top, pants, baseball socks, baseball belt and a hat they can keep.
Directions - Attached are directions/addresses for baseball fields within Region 11. If there are any errors, changes or additions please contact a CYO board member so corrections can be made.

Game Schedule – A scheduling meeting is planned and attended by all coaches participating in Region 11. Schedules are not usually completed and confirmed until the beginning of April. If your child is on a travel team it is important to forward their travel schedule to their coaches prior to the meeting. Every attempt is made to avoid conflicts.
