At the point with baseball, we are still planning for a season based on CCJBA's timelines. They are in contact with health and state officials and are making decisions prioritizing the health of the kids and the community. We also believe that sports are an important part of a child's health and hope to be able to provide some part of a season for the kids in our community if we are able to within state/local guidelines and do it safely. CCJBA will be meeting the beginning of next week and we should have a final update on what the season will be, if anything. We appreciate your patience during this time and know that we are committed to providing baseball to the community for those that want to play, if we are able to. We will communicate any updates as soon as we know to registered players.

- Tball and Rookies spring 2020 season is canceled. All players have been refunded.

- Softball spring 2020 spring season is canceled. We are hoping to have an extended fall season starting in July, if restrictions have been lifted.

- Minors, Juniors and Seniors season is still planning to begin according to CCJBA's timeline. 

We are very disappointed to not be able to provide an opportunity for all players this season. We hope your families are staying healthy and look forward to an amazing spring 2021 season!

 
Federal Level Announcement
Posted Nov 15, 2019

Note About Federal Levels Changes This Year:

JBO has three levels of play: National is the entry level, then American, then Federal. We typically field one Federal team for each grade division (Minor, Junior, Senior).

This season the Pioneer Youth Sports (PYS) board has voted to implement a rule that would only allow 4th, 6th and 8th graders to play on a Federal level team in their respective age divisions.  We, the board, would like to offer a set of core reasons that we decided to enact this rule.

  • This rule will allow for more players to remain together from season to season.  This will increase continuity in coaching staff and teams as well as physical and emotional development among players.  This produces better team cohesion with other players and with coaches and allows players of the same age level and similar ability to develop together.
  • A goal of the baseball program at PYS is to produce the best players into the Oregon City High School program and allow them to be fully prepared with an easy transition.  Allowing the younger grade levels in each division a year to grow, become accustom to longer base paths and longer pitching distances, and gain additional emotional maturity before moving to the Federal level is not only a benefit to those players, but it also benefits the Federal level coaches and the entire team.

The PYS Board does not take rule changes like this lightly and this topic was discussed at length with the sole purpose of making sure we were doing what was most beneficial to our players and our program.  We have also developed a process and a committee to look at assessment scores and address possible exceptions to this rule, in very limited circumstances, to allow 3rd, 5th and 7th graders to play at the Federal level.  These exceptions COULD include, but are not limited to: 3rd, 5th, and 7th graders assessing in the top 5 of their respective age divisions and too few 4th, 6th, or 8th graders to complete a Federal level team.
