Welcome To ECYB

Updated Wednesday November 23, 2016 by El Cerrito Youth Baseball.

El Cerrito Youth Baseball (ECYB) would like to extend a warm welcome to all players, parents and supporters for the upcoming season. We sincerely hope that you will find ECYB to be an enjoyable and rewarding experience.  

Below are a few basic facts about our league:

  • Divisions: There are five divisions defined by the following typical age ranges: Shetland (5-6 years), Pinto (7-8 years), Mustang (9-10 years), Bronco (11-12 years), Pony (13-14 years).  Limited flexibility exists for play up and play down requests, and 4 year olds may petition to play in the Shetland division.
  • Registration: Registration opens in early October and remains open until early January, in time for evaluations.  Shetland remains open for another month.
  • Season: The season runs from March, with practices beginning in February, until division playoffs in early June.
  • Fields:  Most of our fields are in the city of El Cerrito, including Cerrito Vista, Harding, Canyon Trail, Castro and Central; however, some divisions may play in neighboring city fields.  
  • Volunteers - ECYB is a volunteer run organization. All families are expected to volunteer their time in support of the league.

Our Commitment to Community
ECYB takes very seriously its commitment to providing the best possible experience to players of all levels in our community.  We provide our players with high quality fields and equipment, at least two weekly practices in all divisions, and managers and coaches trained in developing skills and teaching life lessons through baseball.  We want to place our players in the right division for their skill and physical and emotional development, and we strive to develop the skills of all players.  We form teams from players in our community, so our kids have friends on their teams and friends on opposing teams, creating extensive networks of friendship and respect through competition and shared experiences (for parents as well as players).

Thank you to all players, parents, coaches, community members and supporters who together make ECYB a quality baseball program and a positive experience for all.
