Beginning Saturday, May 4th through June 8th, from 10:30am-12:30pm, we will be hosting our weekly Slugger’s Academy.
The Academy is optional and open to all Majors & Minors players and facilitated by coaches in those leagues. It is optional to attend and was very popular last year. We will meet informally at the cages between fields D&E and then break up into smaller informal groups from there.
What is Slugger’s Academy?
Think of it as “pick-up baseball” where players can come and work on specific things with coaches and other players. It is meant to be fun and informal. In the past, we’ve had a great group of coaches volunteer facilitate sessions on batting, fielding, throwing, and pitching. It can take many forms, such as drills or game simulations.
What is the goal of Slugger’s Academy?
To improve our baseball skills in a fun environment, while spending time on the fields with our friends
Both Snack Shacks (Deb Samson & Ames Street) are vital to the success of Sharon Youth Baseball and Softball Association (SYBSA). We all need to work together in making sure your children are having the best possible experience. Manning the Snack Shacks is an easy, fun job, and only requires a few hours over the course of the entire season from you. The smiles you will see on the players and parents faces are well worth the small investment of your time.
Sales earned by the Snack Shacks are an important source of income for your league and are used to help shoulder the numerous expenses associated with programs such as ours. From Field Renovations to Uniforms, all proceeds go toward ensuring your children have the best possible experience in your League. These funds help guarantee SYBSA will play a great role in your community today and years to come.
The Management and Staffing of each Snack Shack is done solely by Volunteers. SYBSA currently asks all its Members to work in the Snack Shack during the spring season and tournaments.

New coaches are the lifeblood of the system that keeps SYBSA dynamic and active. Every small era in our development is owed in great part to the parent volunteers who choose to get involved, stay involved and grow their teams. To those who love to spend time with their kids and their kids’ friends, and who value the life lessons that baseball teaches, we proudly invite you to get involved.

3. Coaching is a chance to make all kinds of new friends (especially the young ones).
4. Coaching is making every player know s/he’s the best one on the team.
5. Coaching is two hours on a green grassy field where the office can’t reach you.
6. Coaching is the high-fives you give and get from the sweetest faces.
7. Coaching is assuring a dejected child that the sun will rise tomorrow.
8. Coaching is a tribute to your own kids’ dreams.

10. Coaching is a tribute to the ones who coached you.
