The Warrensburg Sport Program operates under the Warrensburg Youth Baseball Softball Program. We offer sports activities for youth from kindergarten through sixth grade. Youth are welcome from the Warrensburg School District and other Communities. Our primary focus is Football, Basketball, Softball, Baseball, and Slowpitch / TBall. Our program support is accomplished by sponsorships from businesses and individuals as well as fundraising. Volunteers are needed for everything that includes coaching, snack shack, team parents, scoring, umpire and referees. Some of the volunteer activities require certification and training, please ask for additional information if you are interested.
FOOTBALL - Our Football program runs from mid August to early November. Youth in first and second grade may play flag-football; youth from 3rd to 4th grade may play beginning tackle football; youth in 5th and 6th grade may play tackle football. Many of our coaches are certified and work with children of all abilities with emphasis on your child’s safety and ensuring your child is having fun.
BASKETBALL - During winter we have youth from 3rd –6th grade team up to play basketball. Our program runs from November to March. The boy’s teams are divided by grade level with 3-4 and 5–6 and the girl’s team includes grades 3-6. We do travel to other communities for some of our games. Coaches work with children teaching ball handling skills and game play. Sign-ups for this activity occur in November. Games are typically on Saturdays with some weeknight games; practices are generally held in the evenings at the elementary school
BASEBALL - Spring is the beginning of our baseball season. Our sign-ups occur during March and teams are put together in early April. Practice generally starts the week after spring break. Games will typically start the 2nd to last week in April –really depends on the conditions of the playing fields. In addition, we are joined with Johnsburg and North Warren ball programs.
We provide a great learning experience for all levels. T-Ball/Slow Pitch is geared towards first time players –combine boys and girls teams –must be at least 5 years old. Minors, Majors and Softball assist youth with positions, fielding abilities and batting skills. Minors are youth age 7-9 as of April 30th. Youth in Majors and Softball who are thirteen and in sixth grade may register to participate in the program. Youth that turn 13 prior to April 30th do not pitch.

Prior to our Warrensburg Youth Sports Program start notifications are sent home with youth in the Warrensburg School District. We also place a news brief in the Adirondack Journal with sign-up locations, dates, and times. Still have questions –catch an officer or a rep at the field for program details.
Interested in getting involved? There are a variety of activities that need volunteers throughout the year with each sport. We need coaches, timekeepers, referees, umpires, scorers -guidance or training is available as needed. Do you know of a business or entity that would like to assist financially? Our funds are raised by volunteer efforts and are utilized to purchase sports equipment, sports uniforms, payment for insurance, umpires, equipment and building maintenance. We work with the Town of Warrensburg to assure the Town’s fields are prepared for play.
