GBYSL is a volunteer-based league. We offer two programs throughout the year, spring season from March/April through June and fall season from August through October. We also sponsor a summer camp in cooperation with a local club or a national group. Proceeds from this camp goes to our scholarship program.
The registration fee of $125.00 pays the field fees, player fees, uniform, pictures and medal/award. Field fees are paid to the cities of Reno and Sparks and Washoe County while player fees are paid to US Club. Our season is fall and spring just like the Washoe County school calendar.
