Welcome to the Greenville Youth Softball / Baseball League website!

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. 

Coach & Volunteer Application

We need YOU!  We are looking for Softball and Baseball Coaches! Anyone who wants to coach or volunteer in some capacity must complete the volunteer form. All volunteers & coaches must pass a background check. 

Please complete the application below.

Umpires Needed

In order to make the season run smoothly we are looking for additional umpires to put into our home game rotation.  This is a paid position, per game.  We are especially looking for adult or experienced players that are able to be behind the plate umpires.

The Registration "Home" is not currently available.

7th and 8th Grade Baseball and Softball

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.  

Registration is now CLOSED. Tryout information will be sent out as soon as details are finalized. Tryouts will take place in February.

SPORT PARENT CODE OF CONDUCT

We, the Greenville Youth Softball / Baseball League, have implemented the following Sport Parent Code of Conduct for the important message it holds about the proper role of parents in supporting their child in sports. Parents should read, understand and sign this form prior to their children participating in our league.

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.

Preamble
The essential elements of character-building and ethics in sports are embodied in the concept of sportsmanship and six core principles:

  • Trustworthiness,
  • Respect,
  • Responsibility,
  • Fairness,
  • Caring, and
  • Good Citizenship.

The highest potential of sports is achieved when competition reflects these “six pillars of character.”

I therefore agree

  1. I will not force my child to participate in sports.
  2. I will remember that children participate to have fun and that the game is for youth, not adults.
  3. I will inform the coach of any physical disability or ailment that may affect the safety of my child or the safety of others.
  4. I will learn the rules of the game and the policies of the league.
  5. I (and my guests) will be a positive role model for my child and encourage sportsmanship by showing respect and courtesy, and by demonstrating positive support for all players, coaches, officials and spectators at every game, practice or other sporting event.
  6. I (and my guests) will not engage in any kind of unsportsmanlike conduct with any official, coach, player, or parent such as booing and taunting; refusing to shake hands; or using profane language
  7. I will not encourage any behaviors or practices that would endanger the health and well being of the athletes.
  8. I will teach my child to play by the rules and to resolve conflicts without resorting to hostility or violence.
  9. I will demand that my child treat other players, coaches, officials and spectators with respect regardless of race, creed, color, sex or ability.
  10. I will teach my child that doing one’s best is more important than winning, so that my child will never feel defeated by the outcome of a game or his/her performance.
  11. I will praise my child for competing fairly and trying hard, and make my child feel like a winner every time.
  12. I will never ridicule or yell at my child or other participants for making a mistake or losing a competition.
  13. I will emphasize skill development and practices and how they benefit my child over winning. I will also de-emphasize games and competition in the lower age groups.
  14. I will promote the emotional and physical well- being of the athletes ahead of any personal desire I may have for my child to win.
  15. I will respect the officials and their authority during games and will never question, discuss, or confront coaches at the game field, and will take time to speak with coaches at an agreed upon time and place.
  16. I will demand a sports environment for my child that is free from drugs, tobacco, and alcohol and I will refrain from their use at all sports events.
  17. I will refrain from coaching my child or other players during games and practices, unless I am one of the official coaches of the team.
