2017 marks the 34th anniversary of the Westmont Youth Baseball Association. The W.Y.B.A. was formed in the fall of 1983 as a cooperative effort involving the Little League and Babe Ruth League. The W.Y.B.A. is an independent non-profit corporation which, through efforts of its many volunteers who manage, coach, help and sponsor teams, attempts to provide the best possible baseball experience for the children of Westmont.
Approximately 300 area youth, ranging in age from four to twenty, will participate in our program in the 2017 season. Total expenses to operate the program are approximately $95,000 per year. The funds needed to cover these expenses come from parent contributions, sponsor fees, and other fund raising activities. Special recognition is due to our league sponsors. We encourage you to show your appreciate for their support whenever possible.
Great strides have been made in improving fields, conducting coaching clinics and making baseball a great experience for the youth of Westmont. We are proud of these many accomplishments, but much remains to be done. We need the continued support of all parents as well as the rest of the community. Please help us to continue in providing a quality youth baseball experience.
What is a try-out?
A try-out is a method by which the managers and coaches observe a youngster’s skills and are then able to determine the player’s competitive level. Children try-out with their own age group and are competing within their own age group.
Does my child have to try-out?
No, If he/she is 4, 5, 6, 7 or 8 years old or if he/she is already on a Major League or Babe Ruth team, a try-out is not required.
What happens after try-outs?
Players selected by a team will be notified by their team manager about two weeks after tryouts. All other players will be notified of their team assignments as soon as possible. Please do not call about team assignments before April 1st.
