Eligibility

Our teams play in both the Wisconsin State Youth Baseball League (WSYBL) and the MAJOR Youth Baseball League (MAJOR YBL).  Typically our “Red” team will be a member of WSYBL and our “White” team will be a member of MAJOR YBL.  We will place each team in the appropriate league and level that is commensurate to the skill for each team.

Our leagues no longer have residency requirements, so players do not have to live in the Hamilton School District to play on Jr. Chargers teams.

WSYBL Requirements
Reference: http://wsybl.com/pdfs/rules.pdf

Players in a division must either be in the specified grade or age eligible as of Jan. 1st of the upcoming season. For example, a player in the 10U/4th grade must either be in 4th grade OR cannot turn 11 before January 1st prior to the season.

MAJOR YBL Requirements
Reference: https://www.baseball365.net/page/m-a-j-o-r-ybl/forms

No player can be older than their respective age bracket prior to May 1st of the current year.  Beginning with the 2020 season the age as of date for 7U teams will be September 1st, for all other age levels it will continue to be May 1st.  For example, a new 7U player must still be 7 years old as of September 1 prior to the season starting.

Refund Policy

No refunds will be issued to a player who chooses not to participate at any point after team commitment has been made after tryouts.  Personal reasons such as travel, conflicting schedules, or lack of commitment are not cause for a refund.  In the event of an injury prior to July 1st of the summer season, the executive board may review and approve a prorated refund.  All equipment expenses incurred and 1/8th of season dues for each month that the player participated in team activities (based on an 8 month season) are non-refundable.  Medical related refund requests require a letter from a medical professional.
