Status of Spring Baseball and Helpful Resources

Dear PAYSA Families, 

We hope you are safe and healthy and finding creative ways to pass the time with your family. 

With heavy hearts, we are writing to let you know that we are canceling the 2020 spring baseball season. We don’t make this decision lightly but felt with the cancellation of school for the remainder of the year, this was the only possible course. 

PAYSA is a small nonprofit organization that has already purchased equipment and made other preparations for the season and so we ask that you consider making your registration fee a tax-deductible donation to PAYSA. (We were able to hit pause on ordering hats and t-shirts so unfortunately we do have those to hand out). Should you want a full or partial refund on your registration fee instead, please contact us via email at (We ask that you please not request a chargeback/dispute the charge with your credit card company as that complicates things on our end).  Also, due to the way our registration system works, we are not able to apply this year's payment to next year. 

While we have no updates for you yet on other baseball activities over the summer and fall, we are reviewing all options. In addition, we wanted to send along some resources in case you are interested in practicing with your child at home. 

Here is a skills guide we have shared with our volunteer coaches in past years in case helpful to better understand the basics of throwing, catching, etc. 

Additionally, check out this list of ideas for how to have fun with baseball-themed games limited to just a handful of kids at home. These are fun baseball-themed ways to stay active and get some exercise, and maybe even practice some baseball skills without any prior knowledge required! Thanks to Marc M., one of our tee-ball coaches, for putting these ideas together.

We would love to add YOUR ideas to the list! Feel free to email us with fun games/ideas you have and we will continue to add to the list. 

Stay safe and we will look forward to seeing you back on the diamond soon. 

2020 Registration

Mike Matheny Manifesto

While the philosophy of the Mike Matheny Manifesto pertains primarily to the travel teams at PAYSA, the message is applicable across all youth sports. 

We ask that you take the time to read through the Matheny Manifesto and help make it a fundamental part of the Philadelphia Athletics Youth Sports Association.
