Welcome to Excellence in Youth Sports

Our Philosophy

Palm Springs Youth League Baseball believes that it is our responsibility to provide the youth of Palm Springs and the western Coachella Valley with a fair, safe and fun place to learn the sports of softball and baseball, sportsmanship and teamwork. It is important to us that all children are provided with a place for a positive introduction to sports that is free from negative experiences and pressure. We strive to provide a place for social and physical development that builds self-esteem and confidence. We believe that youth sports should be a compliment to academic learning. Our players learn the importance of playing by the rules in a respectful environment. Please join us in developing positive kids for a positive Palm Springs.

If you are interested in joining us by volunteering, donating funds and officiating games, please contact the League.

Sanctioning Body

Palm Springs Youth League is a registered PONY League. We register our League as "an under" League which means younger players who excel can play up in older divisions and advance at their pace and skill level. Our age divisions are divided as follows

Rules of Play

Even though we are a PONY sanctioned League, our baseball division plays under OBR (MLB). We then supplement the rules by the PONY rule book and further supplement them by our local rules of play.

 Volunteer Screening

Palm Springs Youth League has been a pioneer in the requirement for requiring screening and ID cards for our on field volunteers and Board of Directors. You can quickly identify the access to your player by checking the Photo ID card of your Coach. All adults with permission to be on the field are required to display their ID card above the waste and on their outside layer of clothing.
