GYSBL is an independent league not affiliated with any larger national leagues. Over the last several seasons, we have worked hard to establish the vision that defines the Greenville Youth Softball and Baseball League and what it stands for. Our program is growing and we look forward to continuing to grow further. Our core philosophy remains creating the safest and most positive sports experience for the children of the community. Our focus is to offer a program that not only develops athletes, but stresses the development of teamwork, leadership, and integrity among all players and volunteers.
GYSBL will be running 7th and 8th grade baseball and softball this season. These teams will not be affiliated with Greenville Middle School. Players will register for tryouts through our website. Teams will be formed in late February or Early March.
These teams will typically play double headers against teams outside the GYSBL league. Transportation will not be provided. Games will start as early as 4:00pm at times.
Each player will be responsible for a team fee to cover warm ups and uniforms. Fees will be determined ASAP and published.

Any parent guilty of improper conduct at any game
or practice will be asked to leave the sports facility and be suspended from the following game. Repeat violations may cause a multiple game suspension, or the season forfeiture of the privilege of attending all games.
The essential elements of character-building and ethics in sports are embodied in the concept of sportsmanship and six core principles:
The highest potential of sports is achieved when competition reflects these “six pillars of character.”
