Save some bucks getting geared up for fall ball this weekend or for your other fall sports using RYBSA's shopping event with our sponsor Dicks Sporting Goods.
We are excited to announce that RYBSA, DBSL, and BAA are partnering to create a Cooperstown team for the 2022 season. For this we are announcing the initial tryouts will be on Monday August 30th at 5PM at the DBSL Lopes Complex Dighton MA, Field 3.
This tryout is open to current BAA, DBSL, and RYBSA rec players only (registered through BAA, DBSL, or RYBSA) who will be 12 or younger on April 30, 2022.
This team will play a week of 50/70 baseball with 100+ other teams for a week next summer (2022) at Cooperstown Dreams Park located in Cooperstown New York. Date of play to be determined later. Additional details on the cost and experience will be shared at the tryout.
Players who are interested and are unable to attend the tryout should let manager Pete Simmons know in advance at email@example.com. The tryouts will be combined with other activities to identify and evaluate players to build a competitive roster for this level of baseball (rec season evaluations, 50/70 experience, position experience etc). Follow up tryouts may be added to achieve necessary position depth for key positions - possibly to include players from other leagues if needed.

Covid Guidelines & Waivers
- As the league's board and COVID team have updated our guidelines to align to the latest state requirements. You can see the latest version on our website at www.rybsaonline.com/covid
- Highlights: Aligned to state requirements, all players and adults on the premises must wear a face covering at all times. Distancing should be maintained between spectators and players not actively engaged in on-field play.
- Additionally a COVID waiver will be needed again this season as was used last year. Waiver can be found here - COVID Waiver.
- We are asking all players and coaches to provide a signed waiver to their team coach before participating in first practice or event.
- Coaches will also have access to more hard copies in the coaches room.
- All coaches and anyone helping with on-field activities with players needs to be CORI cleared.
-- Completing this background check is quite easy. Send a scan or photo of the completed form attached, including a photo of drivers license to our CORI admin at CORI@rybsaonline.com. CORI Form can be found here - CORI Form.

Hello RYBSA families!
Spring is here and we are right around the corner from being on the fields! To start the season this year RYBSA is holding its first spring plant sale! We are selling hanging plants and all proceeds go directly back to the league and kids! Please fill out the order form and email it to email@example.com. The deadline for all pre-orders is April 24, 2021. The pickup date for the plants will be May 8, 2021, which is also the league picture day! We will be selling additional plants on-site the day of pick up but inventory may be limited so we encourage you to pre-order! If you send payment via Venmo please put “plant sale” in the message! If you have any questions please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
We would like to thank Live Earth for partnering with RYBSA to make this event successful!
We would like to thank everyone who attended evaluations Saturday. We had one of our highest attendance numbers to date. It was great to see all of the kids back on the field. We would like to thank all of the parent volunteers and coaches who assisted. Your efforts are truly appreciated.
Division VP’s are hard at work compiling evaluation results and drafts for older divisions will be occurring over the next ten days. This includes baseball Majors/AAA and Softball Sophomore/Freshman divisions. Younger division teams will begin forming after that. All teams should be formed by mid-April.
Fields are still Closed
The fields at the Martin Street complex are still closed. We realize with the warmer weather there may be many of you interested in getting some additional practice time in with your children. We ask that you remain off the fields for just a little longer while we finish our Spring projects. Within the past week, we have completed a major construction project on Field 3, and Field 4 is planned to be upgraded this upcoming week. We also have been working to prepare the fields themselves for the use they will receive this Spring. The Board has worked tirelessly over the past three years to bring many upgrades to the complex. The youth of Rehoboth has the benefit of playing at one of the best complexes in this area. We will send out a league blast when the fields are open for play.
Saturday, May 8th will be picture day. Please mark your calendars!
The Dick’s Sporting goods coupon is valid through tomorrow (March 29th). As a reminder, please make sure all helmets have a face mask. All bats for baseball Single A thru Majors must have the USA seal. All softball bats should have ASA or USSA certified seal. If you have any questions please reach out to the Division VP in charge of your division.
Please “like” Rehoboth Youth Baseball and Softball on Facebook. Check our page frequently as we post regular updates during the season on league activities and game status.
You have reached the league website for Rehoboth Youth Baseball & Softball Association. We are located in Rehoboth, Massachusetts.
Our mission is to provide a fun and educational baseball experience for youth from Rehoboth and surrounding communities. We include recreational baseball and softball from Tee ball through Seniors as well as hosting all-star tournaments and sending our all stars around the region.
Thanks for your interest in RYBSA - See you at the fields!
The league board and subcommittee have been working hard to develop guidelines and procedures to enable the safe return to play for our players.
As of today, June 6th, we are happy to release these to the league community. There are 2 major elements for you to be read and review:
Return To Play Guidelines
Theses are the specific rules and expectations for participants of all types (players, parents, coaches, etc). These define rules and processes to keep everyone and the league safe and compliant with broader directives.
Covid Waiver to Play
The waiver is a document to indicate your understanding of the guidelines and associated risks. A signed copy needs to be submitted to coach or league officer prior to participation.
It's expected that guidelines may need to be updated as state and local guidance evolves. We have created a static webpage to serve as home for the latest release RYBSA Guidelines. You can find them now and in the future here: https://www.rybsaonline.com/covid
Thanks and looking forward to seeing our league families at the fields soon!
