ANNOUNCES REGISTRATION FOR LEARN TO PLAY & INSTRUCTIONAL DIVISIONS
Are you interested in having your son or daughter play baseball this spring? There is still time to sign up for either the Learn to Play or Instructional leagues. Both programs will teach your child the basic skills to play baseball, and also offer “schedule certainty” for your busy lives!
Learn to Play: This division is designed for 4 year old children (as of April 30th) interested in learning to play baseball.
Players will meet once a week on Sunday for 90 minutes.
The focus will be on learning baseball fundamentals such as throwing, catching, fielding and hitting.
The season will run 8 weeks starting at the end of April at Roberts Field and ends with a “field day” in June at the Route 110 Fields.
Instructional Divison: Formerly called our “tee ball division”, Instructional league is for players who are 5 years of age. This league is geared toward building an understanding of the fundamentals of baseball including proper batting, throwing, and fielding techniques. We use a clinic based training structure which offers multiple exposures to techniques while keeping the players engaged.
Players will meet twice a week – one weekday and once on Saturdays
Schedule certainty – each team will meet on the same weekday, and during one of three time slots on Saturday. We will also make a best effort to minimize conflicts with other sport schedules.
We use our best efforts to accommodate requests for players who need to play with other children for transportation purposes.

About Chelmsford Youth Baseball:
Chelmsford Youth Baseball has programs for children ages 4-18. There are more than 200 volunteers who manage, coach and make up the League’s Executive Board. Many of these volunteers were Youth Baseball players themselves who are happily “giving something back.” Who benefits? – The community and the more than 700 Chelmsford children who’ve shown that they, too, love to “play ball!”
Chelmsford Youth Baseball Funding:
CYB receives no town funding. The League maintains many of the baseball fields in town, relying on registration, donations & fundraising to cover equipment, field maintenance and other operating expenses.
