Sartell Baseball Association has made a decision that player helmets will no longer be provided by the association.
There will be a Fall Apparel store and a helmet option will be on the store for ordering. To stay somewhat consistent with a look we encourage you to purchase this helmet if your player does not already have one, but you are always free to purchase whatever you feel is best.
Should you have any questions or concerns please feel free to reach out to me to discuss this in more detail.
Gopher State Director
Thank you to all players who came out for the 2020 Gopher State Tryouts! We have a talented group of players coming through Sartell Baseball and we are excited for the future of baseball. The rosters for 2020 GS Teams have been posted. If you have any questions please reach out me at firstname.lastname@example.org or 320-293-5632.
Head coaches are all listed with teams as well, if you have any interest in assisting I recommend that you reach out to your teams Head Coach and see if there is anything you can help with.
For those who did not make a Gopher State team there is still an opportunity to play baseball in Sartell with the CMCBL League. More information regarding that league comes out in late winter/early spring. Please watch SportsEngine for updates!
A couple Gopher State things to know for those new to Gopher State or the area:
Levels of Play
Gopher State requires additional travel, expense, and tournaments. We strongly encourage families to consider these additional responsibilities and to register your player in the program that is the best fit.
A player is eligible to participate in SBA tryouts if the following criteria are met:
Please see below guideline for age groups:
10U - Cannot be 11 on or before May 1st, 2020. (typically entering 4th grade Sept. 2019)
11U - Cannot be 12 on or before May 1st, 2020. (typically entering 5th grade Sept. 2019)

Kindly note: MYAS (Gopher State) Guidelines require players to tryout in the community in which they reside or attend school. If you have previously played in another surrounding MYAS organization (St Cloud / Sauk Rapids), you are required to tryout in your home community. These requirements are for players looking to play for a different MYAS Team as MYAS does not require a community to host tryouts in forming their Travel teams.
Please see the FAQ area of our website for additional information.
If at any point you have any questions or concerns please feel free to reach out to our Gopher State Director Nicholas Hemmesch.
