REGISTER NOW!
  • When is league registration?
    Registration begins at 3:00 pm, online at geyl.org, on the Tuesday after Martin Luther King Day and continues through March 31st.
  • What does the league registration fee include?
    Registration fees include a shirt and hat/visor for each player individually as well as a portion of the umpire fees, baseballs/softballs, equipment, field preparation, liability insurance, end of season awards, electricity costs, bathroom supplies, trash pickup, chalk for lining the fields, infield mix, and other necessities.
  • How many games will each team get?
    We schedule a full schedule of at least 8 games for each team, along with the end of season 2 game guarantee tournament. We do not reschedule rained out games unless a team will receive fewer than 5 games. We hold back very few fields each year for reschedules so we can maximize the use of all fields.
  • Why don’t I see the last two weeks of July on my schedule?
    The end of season 2 game guarantee tournament runs the last two weeks of July for every age division. Those games are posted by the middle of June under the “Playoffs” tab on your team site. This tournament is a random draw, since most parents don’t want to wait until the week before to know their game dates, but every team will get at least two more games.
  • Where/when will my team practice?
    The coach selects the practice sites/times/locations when he/she picks up the equipment and uniforms in mid-April. We schedule each team for one 1-hour practice on a grass infield and one 1-hour practice on a dirt infield since there aren’t enough dirt infields in the city to afford each team two practices a week. These practice locations are city park fields, school district fields, and the practice fields at the north end of the Youth Sports Complex.
  • How do I register to coach?
    If you’d like to coach a team, please email Mimi@geyl.org as soon as possible with the age division you’d like to coach. You will receive an email requesting information for a routine background check from We Screen USA. We need volunteer coaches!
  • Are dogs allowed at the Youth Sports Complex?
    According to city ordinance, no dogs are allowed in the park. However, they are allowed on the walking path, outside the fences.
  • Can we park an RV on the premises when coming to town for a weekend tournament?
    Overnight RV parking is allowed in the northwest section of the parking lot at the Youth Sports Complex. There is no overnight RV parking allowed at any other site used by GEYL.
  • How do I get an advertising banner hung on the Youth Sports Complex outfield fences?
    Email your information to Mimi@geyl.org and we will make a banner to your specifications for $300/season advertising. If you want to take the banner at the end of the season, you’ll have to pay GEYL the cost of print, too. We can hang a banner made by you for the $300/season advertising, however, keep in mind that it’s very windy at times out here and very few banners make it through the year without tearing unless they are made with heavy duty construction.

LOCATION MAP
All coaches are required each year by the State of Colorado to perform concussion training and submit proof of training to GEYL.

The CDC offers a free online course for online training. Once you complete the training and quiz, you can print out a certificate, making it easy to show your league or school you are ready for the season.

To help ensure the health and safety of young athletes, CDC developed the HEADS UP Concussion in Youth Sports initiative to offer information about concussions to coaches, parents, and athletes involved in youth sports. The HEADS UP initiative provides important information on preventing, recognizing, and responding to a concussion.
