JV Baseball (5/6th grade)
Varsity Baseball (7/8th grade)
Please note: depending on the outcome of registration, Varsity and/or JV baseball may run differently than in previous years.

This possible pivot is based on feedback from our coaches, parents, and players from the past couple of seasons. Last year, baseball registration numbers were very high: 16 registered for varsity and 27 registered for JV. This level of support and participation in CYO baseball is a blessing. However, it is incredibly difficult to play a 9-person sport with numbers this high (especially JV) if we expect everyone to have equal playing time, especially at the plate!

After much discussion, here are the 2 possible scenarios for our 2024 season:

Scenario 1: In this scenario, if approximately 12-15 boys register to play for our 2024 season, then CYO will form one team, practice together, and play in all Region 32 games.

Scenario 2: In this scenario, should more than 15 boys register to play, CYO will perform an assessment. After careful consideration by CYO coaches, the boys will be split into 2 groups – SKS Wildcat & SKS Blue. SKS Wildcat will be the more competitive team and will play in all Region 32 games. SKS Blue will compete in games inside and outside of our region with the hope of getting the boys in a few Region 32 games throughout the season. Both teams will practice together assuming we have the correct number of volunteer coaches.

As you can imagine, there are a lot of moving parts with both scenarios – more practice time, additional fields, and more volunteer coaches! If you would like to coach or help coach, please reach out to our Spring Coordinator, Jim Sharkey at jshark672@yahoo.com. We are going to treat Varsity and JV separately, so if the numbers look like they did last year (16 Varsity / 27 JV) our Varsity would have 1 team and JV would have 2 teams (Scenario 2 above). We are looking forward to a great baseball season and appreciate everyone’s support as we work through registration and the best way of proceeding.

Thank You! – SKS CYO Board
