The early bird registration period for the 2017 Spring Ball Season begins Thursday, December 1st and continues all month! This means if you log in and register your players online within this time period you will receive a $10 discount per player off of your registration fee.

The early bird registration period is for all Little League, PONY Fast-Pitch Softball players and now our girls Kick Ball league.
During the off season, the BYS Board of Directors continued to volunteer their time behind the scenes to ensure that Balcones Youth Sports offers a great season and the 2017 Spring Season promises to be a terrific one. We will have a few baseball clinics at the BYS facility in late January and early February. Teams will be formed by mid-February and practices will begin within days of team formation. The Spring Season will begin in late February and will end in late May.
Players and parents of Little League can expect two practices per week, mostly Saturday games (some week night for make-up games due to weather or other factors). Also, players will have an opportunity to participate in the MLB PitchHit&Run Competition, Balcones Day Festival, the End-of-Season Tournament in late May, the District 11 City Tournament in June, and/or the State All-Stars Tournament in July. Register now and save money! All registrants will receive updates of upcoming clinics and other important dates as we get closer to the season.
Practices for the PONY Fast-Pitch Softball and Girls Kickball season will also begin in February. For more information about registration, visit our FAQs page.
