GCYAA TBall, Baseball & Fast Pitch Softball
WELCOME to the 2022 SPRING/SUMMER SEASON of GCYAA TBall, Baseball & Fast Pitch Softball! We are happy to have you join us for our 68th season!
Much behind the scenes work is currently being done to prepare for this upcoming season and we are anxious to get this season started!
Before this season gets underway, let me take a moment to introduce myself. My name is Jacquie and I am the Assistant Commissioner for the Tball, Baseball, and Fast Pitch Softball program. I have held various positions within the GCYAA since 2006. Dave, my husband, is the Commissioner for the Tball, Baseball, and Fast Pitch Softball program. He has been involved in many facets of the GCYAA program since 1988! We have four children who have all played within the GCYAA in TBall, Baseball, and Fast Pitch Softball. We, as volunteers, run the GCYAA TBall, Baseball, & Fast Pitch Softball program along with the AMAZING volunteer help of our directors, coaches, parents, GCYAA board, and commissioners of other nearby programs. We truly could not run this program without the help of everyone working together to provide for the kids.
Whenever you have a question, concern, or suggestion, you are always welcome email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or contact me via Facebook Messenger (Jacquie Ferra). You may also email Dave at email@example.com. You can also click on “Email us” from the settings tab on Team App and the email will go directly to both of us. We make every effort to answer you as quickly as possible. Please keep in mind our positions, along with all the other GCYAA positions, are volunteer and are run above and beyond our personal career, family and community responsibilities.

Our main method of communication before and throughout the season is Team App. This is our preferred communication because of its a ability to notify all members registered on the app immediately with all news, documents, and events posted. It is also our first line of communication for changes due to weather. Please sign up for the app here: http://gcyaa.com/baseball-softball-tball/team-app/
Our secondary method of communication is www.gcyaa.com. On our website, you have access to everything pertaining to our TBall, Baseball & Softball program, plus other sports within the GCYAA.
Our last method of communication is our Facebook group. Facebook is our least reliable source of communication. We mainly use it to help bring new members into the program or to answer questions.
Saturday, May 7
For Hands On thru Bronco divisions
Ceremony will be at 10:30am at Moeller Field
Pictures and games will follow the ceremony.
We will not be holding Pancake Breakfast fundraiser this year.
More details will be available as plans are finalized.
We are looking for companies to sponsor one, three or eight teams for the season. Details on the sponsorship packages are available here: Sponsorships 2022

We have a NEW Spiritwear design for the 2022 season with many clothing and color options! You can order Spiritwear anytime via our ONLINE SPIRITWEAR STORE at https://gcyaa.itemorder.com/.
