What's New!

Please note that names of the youth softball leagues have changed, however the age groupings remain the same. 

Score will be kept in Rookie Baseball (age 8-9) and 9U Softball (age 8-9). Standings will not be kept. 

We've transitioned from a Town-wide organization of fall youth instructional baseball and softball (league age 8-9) to an organization by geographic zone (Central, South and West). The facilities located in each of these zones can be found on the zone map below (denoted by the yellow softball or white baseball). You will register your child in the zone you wish to practice and play games.

Please note that older age groups (10 & up) must play on certain size fields. There are not fields of those specific sizes in each zone so these age groups are not zoned.

Inclement Weather Procedure
In case of inclement weather, a decision regarding games will be made by Sports staff. Information will be on the Town website. A recording will also be on the Weather Cancellation Line (919) 319-4500. Updates are made at 3 p.m. each weekday, 7 a.m. on Saturday and 12 p.m. on Sunday. If a decision is made after these times, it will be made at the facility by the officials.

Volunteer Coaches
The Town of Cary relies on volunteer coaches for the organized youth sports leagues. Coaches must be available for weekly practice and games. Each coach is required to be certified by the National Youth Sports Coaches Association and to submit and pass a background check. It is important that coaches teach sportsmanship as well as specific sport skills. Anyone interested in coaching any sport should contact the Parks, Recreation & Cultural Resources sports staff during regular working hours to discuss their coaching interest.

Thanks to our Sponsors
Local businesses and individuals who sponsor youth sports teams play an integral part in the success of the Town of Cary's sports programs. Without their continued support we would be unable to provide quality programs for the youth of Cary. Please visit the Fall Youth Sports Sponsor appreciation page for a complete listing of sponsors.
