Welcome to the home of Bolton Youth Baseball and Softball Programs.
Our program is designed to give all children ages 5-15 the opportunity to have fun learning and playing the great American pastime of baseball and softball.
On this website you will find all the information you need to be an active participant in our program, including schedules, game rules, information on special events, teams and BoD contact information. We are a league run entirely by volunteers and largely supported by our generous local sponsors, so please consider registering as a volunteer to help make Bolton Youth Baseball a great program for years to come.
We encourage all kids to get out there and play one of the many Bolton youth sports programs. If you have any additional questions, please start by visiting our PARENT RESOURCE pages or contact a league administrator listed on the CONTACTS
The annual meeting for Bolton Youth Baseball & Softball will be held at the Houghton Building on November 14, 2016 at 7:30pm. The meeting is open to the public and the Board of Directors will be reviewing the past year and will answer any questions regarding the league. Most important is that in this meeting the general membership will be electing members for the 2017 Board of Directors. Anyone interested in serving on the board for the 2017 season should contact
Bolton Youth Baseball & Softball is a volunteer organization that depends on the generous donation of time, talent, and energy of parents to ensure we continue to put forward a great experience for the kids and families involved. All positions are elected each year. This is a healthier organization when there is greater involvement from the community, and as such are looking for new board members, especially those with younger aged children who will be participating in the league for several years to come.
This is a great opportunity to see, and have a say in, who the new members of the Board of Directors will be. Here are a few things you may not know:
Every year all positions must be re-elected.
Some members take on new positions each year as they are vacated.
Some members stay in their same position as their child stays in the system.
And each year we always have members who are 'matriculating' with their kids and are moving on.
As a parent of a player, you are an official member and may vote at this meeting on the people you feel should be board members.
