2024 Golden Glove


The Golden Glove Baseball League is managed by the Blue Valley Recreation Commission (BVRC) and Olathe Youth Baseball Incorporated (OYBI). This league is being offered for players and teams who wish to compete at a high skill level. Teams wishing to play in this league should be considered AA, AAA or Major level with USSSA baseball. The Golden Glove League will offer six age divisions of play for the Spring/Summer of 2023. There will be two divisions of play for players who are 9 & under, 10 & under, 11 & under, 12 & under, 13 & under and 14 & under. The age cutoff date is May 1st.

To participate in the Golden Glove League, coaches must complete a league application form and submit it to the BVRC or OYB by January 16, 2024. Application forms may be picked up at the BVRC Sports Department office (9701 W. 137th Street) or at the OYB office (885 S. Parker Street). You may also download the application form from our web site (see page 3). Included with the application must be a $100 team application fee. The leagues will typically have 8 to 16 teams per age division. Teams will be notified by January 23 if they have been accepted into the league. Teams not selected for the league will have their $100 application fee returned. Teams that are accepted into the league will have the application fee credited towards their registration fees. The remainder of the registration fee will be due to the BVRC/OYB by February 13, 2024.

The fee will be $1,950 per team. Teams will not have to pay a sponsor fee or coaches fee and will not be charged a gate fee at games. As part of the team registration fee all teams will receive team liability and medical insurance. Game balls will also be provided

Teams will be formed by age, not by grades. Divisions will be offered for players who are 9 years old & younger, 10 years old & younger, 11 years old & younger, 12 years old & younger, 13 years old & younger and 14 years old & younger. The date to determine eligibility for these divisions will be May 1. There will be no geographical boundary restrictions on the team formation process. Players will only need to meet the age requirements to participate in the league. Coaches must turn in a roster listing the players who are on their teams to the BVRC/OYB.
