Does my child have to tryout? What if my child is unable to attend tryouts or does not want to tryout?
There are NO tryouts for our Spirt Divisions. For all other divisions, it is highly recommended your child tryout. Tryouts allow the coaches to see each player’s abilities and helps the league and coaches draft even teams.

Where are tryouts? What field do I go to?
All tryouts will take place at the Sierra Baseball & Softball complex. Directions to the complex can be found under the ‘Directions’ link on the left side of this website. Baseball tryouts will be held on the respective field of play for the division (Shetland will take place on Shetland, Pinto on Pinto, etc).

When will the Spring 2018 season start and end?
The planned start date (date of first games) for the Spring 2019 season is the last week of February 2018. The last games for Softball will be the beginning of May and the last games for Baseball will be the end of June. Please note all dates are subject to change.

If I have a conflict in practice days, where and when do I make that request?
You can note the conflict during the online registration process. If you register at walk-in, you can tell the personnel in the tryout booth. There is no guarantee of team placement even with a conflicting practice day. No team movement after draft.

When and where will the team practice? How often can we expect to practice each week?
During spring baseball and softball, practices are usually held on the Sierra Youth Sports Baseball & Softball complex. The fields are shared by all the teams in that division. Practices will generally be held at least twice per week and will be determined by the manager and/or coaching staff after the drafts are complete.

When will the games be held?
Games will be held during the week (after 4:00 PM) and also on weekends as early as 8:00 AM and through the day. Your team will play at least once a week. Usually your team will play twice per week, one weeknight game and one Saturday game. The schedule for the season will be released a minimum of one week prior to the first scheduled game.

When will I find out which team my child is on?
Drafts are scheduled to be held the week after tryouts. You will be contacted directly by your team manager, coach or team parent following drafts with more information on the season.


I would like to manage a team this season. How do I go about becoming a manager?
There is a section on the registration form to select that you would like to manage or coach a team. Once you have filled it out, also send an email registration@sierrayouthsports.com
