The Flower Mound area is known nationally for highly competitive, top-ranked high school and youth baseball programs. At the heart of the learning process is FMYSA's Select Baseball Program (known as the TEXAS RATTLERS), which fields teams in age groups 7U through HS. FMYSA Texas Rattlers select baseball levels of play are outlined as follows:
AA Division: 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.
Texas Rattlers 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 Alliance for Youth Sports (NAYS), 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.
