All youngsters will have the opportunity to experience many fielding positions over the course of the season and the emphasis will be on the development of fundamental baseball skills and sportsmanship.

Note: Juniors and Seniors Division teams will play in a league that is compatible with the team's level of play. We will play not only all Lewisboro teams, but teams from Brewster, Cortlandt, North Salem & Patterson teams. All games are played on Saturdays and Sundays, so there will be NO conflicts with Modified games. There may be conflicts between JV1 and/or JV2 games and our Spring Junior or Senior leagues. JJHS Varsity players may not be eligible.
Registration & Fee:
The early registration fee is $225.00 per individual registrant. After early registration, the registration fee is $250.00. Any registration received after teams are announced will be subject to a waiting list and may not be placed on a team until after Opening Day.
Evaluations: Evaluations for all 1st through 5th graders will be scheduled in February or early March.
Teams are announced by early April to allow for some indoor and/or outdoor practice time before Opening Day. Regular season play will begin on opening day and soon after for all teams, ending with the Division Championship Games and awards ceremony by mid-June. Weekday practices will be scheduled subject to field availability. Game schedules will be posted to the LBA web site by Opening Day.
Uniforms & Equipment:
All players will receive a team jersey, hat, and socks. Additionally, we will continue to provide a helmet and a heart guard for all players in their first year with the LBA. If returning players need a new helmet or a larger-sized heart-guard, which will be mandatory again this season on the 60 & 70 foot diamonds, we will make them available for purchase at a reduced price. All players must provide their own baseball footwear (no metal cleats), baseball glove, bat, athletic supporter and protective cup. The LBA provides all teams with baseballs, first aid kits, catcher’s mitts and catcher’s equipment.
Note: We urge all players & parents to carefully read the Codes of Conduct before completing online registration, since we introduced some important additions involving player & parent behavior. Also, parents are urged to provide updated and accurate medical information including Doctor, contact, insurance and most importantly, ANY medical conditions or allergies that we will need to be aware of in the event of an emergency.
