For girls who will be ages 7-13 (and in 7th grade or lower) as of December 31, 2015, registration remains open for NYO's Fall Fastpitch season.  Spots are limited, so please sign up sooner rather than later if you would like to join us.  For the Fall Fastpitch season, practices will begin Saturday, August 22, and games will begin Sunday, September 13.  There are no evaluations or drafts for Fall Fastpitch, i.e. NYO assigns the teams.  Each week, the girls will have a single Saturday practice and one Sunday afternoon game.  The season concludes on the weekend of November 7-8.  The time commitment for the Fall Fastpitch season is limited, so that the girls can participate in other sports or activities.  The focus for the fall season is on the development of the players.  If you have any questions, please feel free to email This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it .  We look forward to seeing you at NYO this fall!

On June 19-20, NYO hosted the annual Andee’s Army Fastpitch Tournament.  During the competition, the NYO 14U Avalanche team surprised Andee’s Army with a significant check in support of the foundation.  Earlier in the summer, the team reached out to friends and family to make a donation "per hit" by the Avalanche.  Fortunately for Andee's Army, the Avalanche hit the ball well this summer!  The team was able to raise $5,382.00 through their efforts, which they presented to Andee Poulos this past weekend.  The team also gathered together to help set up for the Andee's Army BBQ Festival prior to tournament play on Friday.  In addition to their off-the-field contributions, the Avalanche played solid softball during the tournament, finishing as runner up in the 16U division.  Thanks to the NYO 14U Avalanche for their volunteer efforts and their gracious support of Andee's Army!

The NYO Attack 10U team continued its remarkable summer with a championship at the Andee's Army Invitational hosted at NYO on June 19-20, 2015.  After surviving pool play undefeated, the Attack entered 10U Gold bracket play as the #2 seed (losing a coin toss for the top spot).  The Attack defeated the NYO Psych Outs in the semi-finals in a close, hard-fought affair, and advanced to meet the West Cobb Invaders in the finals.  Although the Attack jumped out to an early lead, the tough Invaders came back to even the score 3-3 entering the final inning.  NYO tallied two runs in the top of the inning for a 5-3 lead, but in the bottom half, the Invaders fought back to score one run and load the bases with only one out.  Clinging to a 5-4 lead, NYO Attack pitcher Quinn Schaeffer (with some great defensive help from catcher Reagan Southerland) stepped up with two strikeouts to end the game and secure the title for the NYO Attack.  The team endured a lengthy rain delay during the last day of the tournament and wrapped up the championship just before 11:00pm.  Congratulations to the NYO Attack players and coaches for another excellent performance!

With nearly 40 teams participating this year, the third annual Andee’s Army Invitational Softball Tournament at NYO on June 19-20 was by far the largest in the history of the tournament! Teams from all over the metropolitan area in age groups 8U, 10U, 12U, 14U and 16U came together to support Andee’s Army and to play some excellent softball. After completing pool play and enduring a mid-Saturday afternoon rain delay, teams competed in single elimination tournaments well into the evening. Play wrapped up at approximately 10:45p.m. Saturday evening.  It was a tournament to remember, as Andee Poulos helped to present trophies to the winners and also served as an announcer for the webcast of the 14U Championship game between the Central Park Lady Bulldogs and the Alpharetta Attack. NYO thanks all the parks and teams that participated in the event and supported Andee’s Army! The winners of each division were: 8U Gold—West Cobb Xplosion; 8U Silver—NYO Bullets; 10U Gold—NYO Attack; 10U Silver—Sandy Springs Storm; 12U Gold—Sandy Springs Storm (pictured here with Andee Poulos and 12U Gold Finalists NYO); 12U Silver—Sandy Plains Ice; 14U—Central Park Lady Bulldogs; and 16U—Chatsworth Casserole. Thanks to all players, coaches and families for coming out to NYO and being part of this event!
