ALL INFO REGARDING 2016 EVENTS WILL BE POSTED SOON. JUST TO CLARIFY, THE ELITE TOURNAMENTS ON SAT ONLY ARE FOR AAA/MAJORS TEAMS ONLY, AND THE SELECT SAT ONLY TOURNAMENTS ARE FOR AA AND NEW TEAMS ONLY. AS ALWAYS, WE WILL OFFER BOTH OPEN AND AA CLASSIFICATION ON ALL OTHER TOURNAMENTS. DEPENDING ON WHO SIGNS UP, WILL DETERMINE HOW BRACKETS ARE DRAWN. THIS SPRING WE WILL HAVE 3 DIVISIONS OF PLAY TO ACCOMMODATE THE NEW MORE REC TEAMS, THE AA DIVISION FOR THE MORE COMPETITIVE TEAMS, AND THE ELITE DIVISION FOR THE MOST ADVANCED TEAMS. WITH ALL SELECT/CLUB BASEBALL IN ONE PROGRAM, THE LEVELS OF PLAY WILL BE MUCH EASIER TO SEPARATE. THIS WILL ALLOW TEAMS TO STAY TOGETHER BUT NOT HAVE TO PLAY THE TOP TEAMS. THEY WILL STILL HAVE A FEW GAMES SCHEDULED TO BE CHALLENGED AGAINST HIGHER LEVEL TEAMS. THE GOAL IS TO KEEP ALL KIDS PLAYING LONGER AND THE BEST WAY TO DO THAT, IS TO CREATE AN ARENA WERE TEAMS CAN COMPETE, AND BE CHALLENGED. ALL KIDS DEVELOP AT DIFFERENT LEVELS, AND THIS WILL GIVE THEM A BETTER CHANCE AT STAYING IN THE GAME LONGER, AND HOPEFULLY ONE DAY HAVE A CHANCE AT MAKING THEIR HIGH SCHOOL'S BASEBALL ROSTER. THIS IS A BIG SEASON FOR WEST TEXAS YOUTH BASEBALL. IT IS OUR 10TH SEASON AND ALL WE DO IS BASEBALL. WE WILL CONTINUE TO WORK HARD TO PROVIDE OUR AREA WITH THE BEST BASEBALL POSSIBLE. THERE ARE SEVERAL ANNOUNCEMENTS COMING IN THE NEXT WEEK SO PLEASE CHECK BACK FREQUENTLY.

Thank you for your interest in WTYBA. Our league consists of a select program for teams that want to form and stay together and also an elite division for the more competitive select teams. Our program has been growing every year since 2007 and we are the largest youth baseball program in the panhandle. We work very hard to provide our region with quality baseball. The league is run with the participants in mind seeking input from many knowledgeable baseball folks. This is the participants program, run by individuals who understand the ever changing baseball trends. The program will always strive to meet the needs of the competitive baseball teams and never allow agendas or egos to get in the way of our goal for quality baseball in this area. It is not a draft league. We are very lucky in this area to have Kids Inc and Canyon Baseball Assoc who will run a recreational baseball program, assuring any kid who wants to play baseball has an opportunity to play. We do have a Free Agent list that consist of players who are looking for a team to play on. We would be happy to add your player to that list. Click the FREE AGENT link below to fill out the online form. This is NOT a guarantee of getting added to any of the select or elite teams, but only a way for parents to show their kids interest in playing for a team. We will remove the free agent list 1 week out from the deadlines to signup for any of the rec sign up leagues, which gives parents a chance to register their kid for the draft in these programs. We will work closely with both of the rec programs now and in the future to assure all kids have opportunities to play the great game of baseball!!
I hope this answers some of your questions. Let us know if there is anything else we can do for you.
