La Costa Youth Organization (LCYO) www.lcyo.org is a not-for profit 501(c)(3) organization that provides baseball and softball programs for youths between 5 to 16 years old who live mainly in the Carlsbad, San Marcos, Vista and Encinitas areas. Our baseball programs are associated with "Pony" Baseball. Our softball programs are associated with Amateur Softball Association (ASA).
Our Champions division is specifically designed for players of special needs the opportunity to participate in America's favorite pastime of baseball and softball. It’s organized and run by a local high school student, Eli Rejto! LCYO Champions is a co-ed division where boys and girls play together on the same teams. Each player is partnered with a champions buddy (Typically a player 12-16 years of age). We don’t charge any fees for this program and also provide uniforms, hats, trophies and more for the champion’s players and champions buddy. It is our goal to provide an environment that enhances the participants' self-esteem, physical mobility, and embodies the spirit of teamwork and community.
Enjoy one of the finest activities for boys and girls in the North County! The number one rule at LCYO is to "Have Fun!"

The number one rule of LCYO baseball is to “HAVE FUN!”
I would like to thank the Board and all the volunteers for your commitments this past year. The volunteers give a lot of their time so our children can learn how to play the great game of baseball, learn about sportsmanship, being part of a team, and most importantly hang out with their friends and have fun. It’s wonderful that so many families can work together in order to provide this safe and fun experience for the boys and girls of our community.
Baseball practices start in mid-February; games start in early March and go through the end of May. Generally, there are two commitments a week; one on a weekday after school and the other on Saturdays. Games are conveniently located in the La Costa area.

You can learn more about the Champions and the positive impact it has by clicking on the Champions tab above or their Facebook page HERE.
LCYO is a 501(c)(3) entity! This is important because for every dollar a sponsor donates to LCYO, it’s a 100% tax write-off. Our two primary sources of revenue are Registration Fees and Sponsorships. All teams will need to find a team sponsor please, or together cover the fee of $300 per team.
Let’s make it fun and positive for the kids, stress-free for our parents and easier on our dedicated volunteers. LCYO is one of the best youth sports leagues in America because of our families – that’s YOU!
Enjoy the Holidays!
