Chandler Youth Baseball (CYB) is a locally run, non-profit baseball league for kids, ages 3
thru 18, formed in 1969. In 1998 CYB became associated with PONY Baseball of
America. PONY stands for "Protect Our Nation's Youth". PONY Baseball of
America is a non-profit corporation started in 1951, and
is a national competitor to the better known "Little League".
CYB is run by an all-volunteer Board of
Directors elected annually by its members. We
have volunteer opportunities for our parents/family members or community at
whatever capacity you can participate in. How can you help? See below.
CYB is always looking for volunteer coaches at every
division level. If you are interested in becoming a head coach or assistant
coach, please consider applying today. Note: Information on our
division levels is located under the “League Information” tab.
No special training is required to coach in
CYB. However, we do provide training for
coaches prior to the spring season and strongly recommend that they take
advantage of it.
The head coach is responsible to establish all
practices. This includes locating the
site for the practice along with the date and time. The league is
responsible to establish all games which includes time/location.
Expenses incurred could involve practice lights and
equipment not supplied by the league.
All coaches are required to go through a background check (requirement from the
City of Chandler). This is completed by an outside company called Crimshield. Background checks are required annually
for all volunteers.
To become a coach you will need to
fill out our coach application (you must be 21 years of age to become a head
