Baseball Team and Player Picture Days this weekend, April 25-26 at the fields.

This weekend our photographers from Irvin Simon will be taking team and player pictures.  They will be in Prospect Park on both Saturday and Sunday and in Washington Park and Van Voorhees Field on Saturday.  (There will not be a photographer in the Parade Grounds.)

The individual photos are optional but we do hope you want to take the opportunity to obtain a great memento of your child’s baseball experience and support the 78PYC at the same time.

On the other hand team pictures are required, as a plaque with a photo of your team has been promised to them as part of their sponsorship package.

Please coordinate with your coaches so that all the players are in the team picture.  We are asking all teams to have their picture taken immediately after their game except those having the last game of the day should come at least an hour before their game.

All but a handful of teams are scheduled to play in Prospect Park, or one of the other two fields, on Saturday or Sunday, so everyone should be able to get their team pictures taken.  There are only two teams with no games this weekend, we ask that those teams assemble at a convenient time to have their pictures taken as there is no makeup weekend.

To speed the process, please fill out the form in advance, it can get pretty crowded.  Click here for the order form:78PYC Picture Order Form 2014.  Irvin Simon will take credit cards, cash, or checks on the field.  The pictures are mailed directly to the address you enter on the form.

 Thanks for supporting the 78th Precinct Youth Council.

Introduction to the new website and registration system

Welcome to our new website!

We hope you like it. It reflects the success of our programs, which have grown as a result of your support and the participation of your children. Thank you very much!

We hope it will make your interaction with us more convenient, effective, and fun for your children. Much of the structure and content should be familiar, but a great deal has been added:

  • Drop down menus mean fewer steps to access information
  • Expandable text highlights key information and allows you to read more on topics of interest to you by clicking on the headline
  • A search box that accesses the text on every page and in every PDF
  • Many more pictures and videos
  • More complete explanations of our programs in each About page
  • An easy to access and understand FAQ page
  • A simple contact form for emailing us
  • Social media icons on many pages to quickly share information about our programs, events, camp, and clinics with your friends
  • Easy access to the website from PCs, Macs, tablets, and mobile devices
  • An online application for our intern program
  • Google map links to fields and gyms
  • And more…

The new registration system has been up and running for a few weeks now. The old registration system has been retired by the vendor. To date we have had over 1,500 registrations in the new system! We appreciate your cooperation and patience as we continue our transition to the new system. You can access the new registration system from the top menu under the Register/Pay menu item. Click Active Programs & Events to review current options first, or go directly to the new registration system by clicking on Register/Pay Now.
