Fargo Coaches Meeting:
As a reminder, there will be a virtual FYB Coaches meeting tomorrow night (Thursday, April 15th) at 7:00 pm. Due to the limitations with Zoom, we ask that only one coach from each team attends. If you're a Fargo 61's travel coach, you do NOT need to attend this meeting. In the event, you are unable to attend the meeting or if the meeting is at max capacity, we will be recording the meeting and posting it on our website for you to tune in at a different time.

Practice Policy 

Baseball is a game of repetition and therefore practice is a key component in the development of every player. For this reason, FYB asks that each coach hold a minimum of 1 practice a week. Practice days and times are determined by the coaches. Fargo Youth Baseball encourages coaches to speak with the players' parents to determine which day and time works best for their team. Please keep in mind that practice fields are based on a first come, first serve basis. This is the policy of the Fargo Park District that we must abide by.  No team or individual will have exclusive rights to a field. If more than one team is at the same site at the same time, we ask that the coaches work together to share the field and space available. 

Additional Opportunities & Info

Fargo Youth Baseball encourages coaches to utilize the resources provided by USA Baseball, Little League, and Babe Ruth. Each organization provides in-depth information on practice plans, drills, rules, and fun games to keep your players engaged.
