**SPRING 2017 TRYOUTS**
Tryouts for SPRING baseball will take place in November! Detailed information will be provided as we get closer to time. However tryouts will occur beginning the week of November 14th and will all be concluded by November 30th. For special requests or age group specific questions please contact your age group representative (see below for contact information).
FMYSA considers new coach applications twice a year (May 31st for Fall and October 31st for Spring seasons). Applicants are interviewed by a Select Baseball Committee which makes recommendations to the FMYSA Board. A Board vote determines whether to approve new coaches..
If you have applied in the past but were not selected, you must reapply to be considered for the following season.
FMYSA Baseball levels of play are outlined as follows:
A Division: Recreational league and All-Star teams
AA Divison: Beginner to experienced select teams with restricted rosters and tryouts to permit more competitive play, generally playing local or regional tournaments
AAA Division: More experienced teams playing at a higher skill level with restrictive rosters. Can involve travel to state or regional tournaments
Major Division: Most competitive teams with highly restricted rosters, often competing against other top teams in the region with travel to regional and national tournaments
FMYSA sanctioned select teams are well known throughout the area and region and regularly place in tournaments. The teams practice at Town of Flower Mound parks and most teams play a league schedule through the Texas Elite Baseball Association (TEBA) with at least half of that schedule played in Flower Mound.
While our coaches have autonomy between the fences, they are required to maintain certification by the National Youth Coaching Organization, pass a criminal background check, and agree to abide by the FMYSA Select Guidelines. The guidelines are designed to ensure fair playing time, offer an affordable fee structure and open book policy to team finances, develop a select “brand” of teams, and to continue offering the quality facilities and fine coaching for which we have become known.
