New Palestine Youth League

Dragons Travel Program

Our travel league (“Dragons League”) allows more competitive athletes to hone their skills by competing against teams from other geographic areas. Such opportunities provide these young athletes with physical fitness and self-confidence as well as training in teamwork and leadership. Dragons baseball and softball team players do NOT play in the spring recreation league in addition to their Dragons' games and tournaments. At this time, the NPYL Dragons league serves youth ages 6-12, but we are looking to add higher age brackets soon.

Baseball Division Teams:
7U (Showcase only), 8U, 9U, 10U, 11U, 12U

Softball Division Teams:
8U, 10U, 12U


TIMELINE 

JULY: The Dragons League hosts open tryouts in July for each age division. Tryouts consist of 1-2 days of workouts, and the top players are selected for the team.

JANUARY-MARCH: Dragons' teams begin winter workouts in January. All winter workouts take place at an indoor facility. Outdoor practices begin in March (weather permitting).

APRIL-JUNE: Teams play a full travel season in the spring and summer. Some teams may elect to play in a small number of fall tournaments as well.

 FEES

Total amount of the individual player fees typically range between $500-$1,000. These fees cover: player uniform costs, tournament fees, umpire fees, team equipment, and more. All fees are due to the Dragons Treasurer on or before March 15th each year. No uniforms will be distributed until fees are paid in full. Payment plans are available. Fees paid are non-refundable, except in the case of injury that results in the player’s inability to continue the season. In which case, fees will be reimbursed on a pro-rata basis.

 PLAYER FUNDRAISING

Fundraising is available that allows players and their parents to sell product and keep the profit. This allows families to help pay themselves back for their player fees. Information for these fundraisers will be distributed by your team’s coach.

PLAYER COMMITMENT

Dragons League and its coaches invest a lot of time and effort for the teams and players. All players and the parent/guardian agree to make Dragons their first priority with regards to practices and games. Any player who misses a Dragons game or mandatory practice for another team or for any unexcused reason will sit out the following game or games as determined by the player’s coach.

 CODE OF CONDUCT

All players and parent/guardian agree to strictly abide by the following Dragons code of conduct. Failure to strictly abide by such code of conduct may result in player suspension or removal from the Dragons League.

  • Coaches are the only person who can question an umpire’s call. No player, parent, guardian, or other family shall question an umpire’s decision or use any profanity or derogatory words towards an umpire, coach, player, or other parent.
  • No player shall, at any time, throw his glove, bat, or other equipment. Such action may result in lost playing time at the discretion of the coach.
  •  No parent or other family member may be in the dugout during game time.
  • Players are expected to listen to their coaches at all times during the game. Please allow the coach to do his job during game time and do not advise your child how to play during the game.
  •  In the event a parent has a question regarding their child’s playing time or position in a particular game or actions that occurred during a particular game, the parent must wait at least 24 hours before approaching the coach. Question must be addressed with the head coach and not other coaches.
