  • Registration Deadline: March 1st, 2023, for everyone EXCEPT Travel interested players. The deadline is January 31st, 2023, for those players trying out for a travel team.

Age Charts:

  • For the RRVL league, we are accepting both Cal Ripken & Little League age charts. The player may choose which age group they want to compete in. For example, if Sam was born in August of 2012, the Little League age chart has him as an 11-year-old for the 2023 season; the Cal Ripken age chart has him as a 10-year-old. So, Sam would have the option of playing in either the 10 or 11-year-old division.
  • If a player would like to sign up for travel baseball, the player must sign up under the Cal Ripken/Babe Ruth Age Chart.
  • If you're trying out for a Little League team (12-15U), please select the Little League option during your player's registration. For additional info regarding our LL program, please visit the LL page by clicking here.
  • If you're interested in trying out for Little League and Travel, please select both options during the registration process.

About the Red River Valley League (RRVL):
The Red River Valley League is a league combined with teams from Fargo, West Fargo, Moorhead, and other surrounding communities. If choosing to participate in the RRVL, games will be scheduled in Fargo, West Fargo, or Moorhead.  

When choosing to play in the RRVL with FYB, you will have the opportunity to choose from either “Competitive” or “Recreational” when registering for the season. We will place your child at the level that you choose. We do try to keep players from the same neighborhoods and schools together, however, there may be some instances this is not feasible due to roster limits.

Fargo 61’s Travel Program:

  • Fargo Youth Baseball offers the Fargo 61’s travel program for ages 9-15u. It is designed to give players an additional competitive baseball opportunity to play some of the top competition in the area, state, and region. Travel teams will be given the opportunity to travel to various tournaments throughout the area in the summer as well as the opportunity to compete in the North Dakota State tournament and beyond.

Little League All-Star Program
  • Fargo Youth baseball will have a Little League All-Star team for ages 12U, 13U, 14U, and 15U. It is the intent of Fargo Youth Baseball to field a team that will best represent our organization in competition and character. To learn more about the LL All-Star program, please click here

  • During the registration process, you will have the ability to request a certain coach or player(s) to participate with for the RRVL. Coaches are allowed to form their own team if the player chooses to play for them.  Teams are allowed to stay together year after year. If submitting a roster, the deadline is March 1. Please make sure to communicate with the families/coaches and submit your request during the registration process.
  • These submissions are not guaranteed but we do our best to accommodate all requests. 

Indoor Facility (the ATTIC): 

  • You must be registered for the 2023 season to utilize the indoor facilities for no charge.
  • When reserving time in the indoor facilities, coaches/individuals may only reserve a facility for one practice per week and only 2 tunnels at a time, for an hour time slot.
    • Fargo Youth Baseball recently equipped the ATTIC with additional equipment to split the tunnel in half allowing anywhere between 2 – 4 cage options.
    • There are 2 L-screens, 2 ball caddy’s, 2 hitting tee’s, 2 hitting mats, and a fungo screen to split your tunnel in half.
    • If you split your tunnel in half, BE SURE TO USE THE EXTRA HITTING MAT TO PROTECT OUR TURF.
    • Your indoor practice can consist of one hour in length and prefer that you schedule on the hour mark.
      • Example: 5:00-6:00pm, not 5:30-6:30pm. If we're within 48 hours from the time you reserved and if tunnels are open, coaches or individuals can reserve either more tunnels and/or more time.
  • For individuals, if the ATTIC is open within 48 hours, you can reserve space. Please email [email protected] or call 701-232-9225.
  • For additional information or if you are a coach and already have a Skedda account, please click here to book.
