YOUTH LEAGUES
 

GVPR YOUTH BASEBALL - FALL 2014
The Fall Baseball program is a preparatory league getting kids geared-up for the following spring baseball season.  Participants/Teams need to register in the division he/she will be playing in for the 2015 spring/summer season.  The age cut-off date is May 1st, so the age of each child on May 1, 2015 determines what division he/she will be playing in.  We are offering boys baseball from t-ball up to 14U.  We are also offering girl's t-ball.  In the event that we do not get enough girls registered we may have to combine the girls with the boys in t-ball.
Individual Registration
Individual registrants will be placed on a team in 1 of 2 ways: 1) When we receive enough individual registrants, those individual players will be combined to form a team; 2) An individual registrant may be placed on an established team who is looking to increase their roster.
There is a possibility, due to low registrations, that we may be unable to find or form a team for individual registrants.  League payment does not need to be made until your child has been placed on a team.
Team Registration 
Teams are responsible for their own uniforms. 
 



The Grain Valley Athletic Association (GVAA) administers youth football, basketball, and cheerleading in Grain Valley.  The GVAA is responsible for registration, practice & game schedules, equipment & uniforms, and general league administration.  The Grain Valley Parks & Recreation Department is responsible for maintaining and preparing athletic fields, operation of concessions, and background screenings of all coaches & volunteers.  For more information about the GVAA and to register for a youth league program please visit www.gvaasports.org.
