Glenview Youth Baseball is comprised of three primary programs:
The Spring House League is GYB's primary baseball league. The spring season runs from April through June with approximately 800-1000 players participating in age divisions ranging from 4 years old to 14 years old. The league is open to boys and girls of all skill levels. Summer Ball is a continuation of house league with approximately 300-400 players participating from June-August.
Summer Patriots is GYB's part-time travel baseball program. Teams are be formed at the 8U through 16U level if there is enough talent at each age level. Summer Patriots teams play in the Lake Shore Feeder Baseball League (LSFBL) and participate in local tournaments (April - July). Patriot players are required to also play in the GYB Spring House League.
The Blaze is GYB's elite, full-time travel baseball program. The program is highly selective and participates in the Mid-Suburban Baseball League (MSBL). Players in this program typically play 12-18 regular season games during the season and up to 8 tournaments throughout the spring and summer. Blaze players do not participate in the GYB Spring House League.
