Getting Started

Welcome to our parents’ info page. Hopefully you’ll find the information you need for your player(s) here, so registration is easier.

Volunteer Opportunities

There are numerous ways you can volunteer with GEAYA. You can be a head coach, assistant coach, team parent, Opening Day Ceremony Committee lead or member, Equipment Swap Committee lead or member, or a Camp committee member.

All volunteers MUST have a background check completed before they can interact with players on or off the field. GEAYA performs the background check. This takes about a week, so please be patient with this process. Login or create an account to volunteer here.

REGISTRATION FEES

GEAYA works hard to keep the costs to play low, so parents are not financially burdened with registration fees. GEAYA currently has one of the lowest registration fees in Austin for Little League.

  • $55 per player for spring registration, no sibling discounts
  • $55 per player for fall registration, no sibling discounts
  • $70 per player late registration for spring (starting on March 6th), no sibling discounts
  •  $70 per player late registration for fall (starting on September 11th), no sibling discounts

Financial assistance is available for qualified families, please click here to see if you qualify.

What to Purchase

What you need to buy for your player

As part of your registration fee,  GEAYA provides your player with a team uniform that includes hat, jersey, socks and a belt. GEAYA has bats for each team, but if you’d like to purchase a bat for your player you can. See below for information on what families need to provide for their players and bat specifications. 

  •      Baseball glove. If you are unable to purchase a glove, please contact us and we’ll work with you to get a glove for your player.
  •      Baseball helmet.
  •      Baseball pants with belt loops (typically gray) – your coach will let you know what color.
  •      Non-breakable, refillable water bottle for practices and games.
  •      Sneakers or rubber/plastic cleats (no metal cleats).
  •      Bat with a USA logo. USA bats are the only bats approved by Little League. You do not need to purchase a bat for your player, GEAYA has plenty, but you can if you’d like to.

  • Bat Length. An easy way to determine the correct bat length for your player is to place the knob of the bat at the center line of their chest and extend one arm. The end of the bat should align with the tips of their fingers. See Image below:


  • Bat Weight. We recommend drop -8 or -12 bats. The bat weight is calculated by the number of ounces subtracted by the length of the bat. So, a 28 drop 10 bat is a 28” bat with 10 ounces subtracted from its weight. You’ll see it as a 28 drop 10 or 28”/18oz.
