Youth Baseball/Softball

Town of Tupper Lake teams up with TLYBSA and volunteer coaches to provide 6 different levels of play for youth ages 4-12. T-ball (ages 5-6) and Coach Pitch (ages 7-8) are co-ed skills based practices only, that focus on the basics for our younger athletes. Minors Softball (Grades 3-5), Majors Softball (Grades 6-8), Minors Baseball (10 and up), and Majors Baseball (12 and up) focus more on game structure and allows our older youth to play against area teams. Practice/game schedules, location and registration times & fees vary based on level.
