***Registration for the 2019 Baseball Season*** is officially open! Please click HEREto Register!
Last year one of the most talked about changes was South Jeffco Baseball returning back to building relationships with our feeder High Schools Chatfieldand Columbine. It ended up being a huge hit as all across town you see our baseball players wearing their Rebels / Chargershats proudly which also includes the SJ Baseball logo on the back.
This year we have even more exciting news, as South Jeffco Baseball was able to lock in time at an Indoor Hitting Facility. Historically this is always one of our most popular requests from coaches/parents as it’s becoming extremely difficult for our local teams to stay competitive in the winter as indoor options are becoming tougher to obtain.
2019 League will be played through AYL again:
AA Teams – 12 Game Regular Season, 3 game guaranteed Tournament, Playoffs/World Series
Note: New for 2019, included in the registration fee will be an entry into the AYL AA Classic Tournament on May 3rd – 5th
AAA / Majors Teams – 10-12 Game Regular Season, 3 game guaranteed Tournament, Playoffs/World Serie
Note: The Tournament included in your registration fee will be the AYL Spring Blast Tournament on Apr 5th – 7th
There are several factors that play into registration costs. Please keep in mind that South Jeffco’s registration includes a Hat and Jersey. This is often an expense that other organizations remove from their registration price, requiring families to pay after registration for their uniforms.

Players that want to try out for 8-Majors
New players joining the South Jeffco organization
Players that are not being protected by their previous team
Players looking to change teams or tryout for a higher level
(please contact – / )
The baseball divisions available starting with the highest are - Majors, AAA AL, AAA NL, AA AL, AA NL
Equipment: Players should come prepared with all their equipment, glove and bat/helmet if they have one. Regular shoes are fine as the tryout is indoors.
AYL has elected to not make any changes for the 2019 season in relation to “grade-based” or baseball bats. However, SJ will continue to strongly encourage players especially at the AAA / Majors level to play their grade. It is always OK to play up a grade, but we recommend not playing down a grade. There are so many examples of playing down a grade that negatively impacts the player heading into their 7th/8th grade seasons.
