Baseball Travel Team Tryouts - NEW DATES

Tryouts for HYAA 8u-12u Travel Baseball teams are scheduled for October 17, 19, and 21 at Phillips Park, Holmdel, NJ. The tryouts will include an independent evaluation. PLEASE NOTE: This schedule is subject to change, so please check the HYAA travel baseball page for updates to the schedule, or postponement due to inclement weather.

Free Instructional Softball Clinic New

We will be running a free softball instructional clinic for our 7, 8, and 9 year old girls this Fall starting in September. The clinic will be on Tuesday evenings (5:30 p.m.) and Sunday mornings (9:30 a.m.) at Cross Farms field #2 . The clinic will work on all aspects of the game with a focus on having fun while they learn the proper techniques of fielding, throwing, batting, catching and base running.

We ask that any girl signing up for this clinic try to attend as many practices as possible and bring their own bat, glove and helmet (extras will be provided). If you are only able to make one of the two practices a week due to conflict in schedules we are open to having your child attend one day a week. Anyone interested should contact Anthony Vanario at avanario31@gmail.com. Emails should include child's name, age and which day or both days you plan to attend.

Fall Softball Update

Our 10-13 year old fall softball programs were unable to get enough participation to field full teams and therefore we will be issuing you a full refund. If your daughter is still interested in playing softball this Fall, the Hazlet softball league will accept registrations through the end of next week. The 2014 registration form can be submitted to HYAL or you can use Hazlet's online registration form.

We are currently working on finalizing a team at the 7, 8, and 9 year old level so if you registered in this age group the coach will be reaching out to you in the next few days. You will be required to register in the Hazlet league directly (please do so by next week) but all girls at this age group will play for a Holmdel team/coach.

Parents can contact the HYAA office with any questions or concerns.

Thank you for your support and we’ll see you in the Spring.

Time To Help One of Our Own

After fighting and recovering from cancer just two years ago, Tim McDonnell, Sr. received the phone no parent ever wants to receive. His son Tim, Jr. while attending Rutgers was struck by a car and placed in a medically induced coma. Now weeks later, Tim faces a long road to recovery, currently in a rehabilitation center showing some signs of hope.

The outpouring of support both from the Rutgers & local communities has been overwhelming but as you might imagine, the family faces mounting medical bills.

A website has been created www.FightforTimmy.com that provides more information as well as accepts donations online. Click here for some additional information.

The McDonnells have been involved in and supported many charities in the past and we are asking everyone's support to now help them in this difficult time.

Coach Background Checks

Coaches must fill out the background check form, and bring a driver’s license to the office or to a Pre-Season Coaches Meeting in order to coach in HYAA. This applies to all head coaches and assistants. The fee will be paid by HYAA. Forms will be available at the monthly HYAA meetings, in the HYAA office, and at any Pre-Season Coaches Meetings. Background checks must be completed every two years.
