Thunder & Lightning Safety Plan

Thunder & Lightning Safety Plan for NYO's Fields at Chastain Park.



* All play or practice is suspended
* All players, coaches, umpires, officials and spectators should leave the field and seek shelter immediately!

Move to a sturdy enclosed structure or a fully enclosed vehicle with the windows rolled up. No place is absolutely safe from a lightning threat, however some places are safer than others. Stay away from:

* Fields, common areas and any area of higher elevation.
* Tall isolated objects, such as flag poles, light poles or trees.
* All metal fences, bleachers and batting cages.
* Unprotected open sided buildings like dugouts, picnic pavilions, rain shelters, tents, or any covered rest area.
* All water and water fountains.

Safety is the number one consideration - common sense and good judgment should be used at all times.

Parents dropping off unattended children should have a safety plan in place for their child.
Do not return until the all clear is sounded – 3 quick 5 second horn blasts.

NOTE – For offsite NYO games or practices, umpires and coaches should follow the same safety guidelines if they hear thunder or see lightning. Play or practice shall not be resumed until there has been a minimum all clear period of 20 minutes – again common sense and good judgment should be used at all times.

Thank you!

**UPDATE**Thanks to all those who have registered for the camp.  At this time, the camp is FULL an no more spaces are available. 

The Holidays are approaching rapidly and it’s time again for Matt Harpring’s Annual Basketball Clinic. This is the 4th year that we are holding this clinic and expect to have kids from many area schools attend. It will be a 2 day clinic this year – Monday & Tuesday (December 22nd & 23rd) from 8:30am – 3:30pm and will be held at the NYO Gym at Chastain Park. Campers will learn basketball skills/fundamentals and team work while still having fun. Matt will be conducting the camp using the same format as he does during his summer basketball camps, which he has been doing for over 13 years. Below are the details and needed information about the clinic.

For one of the first times in recent years of the celebrated 60-year history of the NYO Red Devils football program, the 6th Grade team ventured out to play in a national football tournament over Thanksgiving weekend. The Red Devils marched through the tournament unscathed, ultimately beating the top-ranked team from the state of Maryland, the St. Charles Bears, 29-7 in the championship game. Thus, the Red Devils finished the tournament undefeated and became the National Champions of the Turkey Day Classic, held at South Paulding High School in Douglasville, Ga.  (click photo to read more).


The 2nd Grade NYO Red Devils team posted a 2-0-1 record at the Miracle Bowl in Alpharetta over the Thanksgiving holidays completing the tournament with the best record for its age group. This picture is after a 31-0 victory over Alpharetta. The 2nd Grade Red Devils gave up only one touchdown in three games and outscored their opponents 61-6.

2015 Spring Baseball Signups - Update

UPDATED 11/19/14 - Thanks to all of those who have registered so far for 2015 spring basealll. Looks like it will be another record year for NYO Baseball.  We have now completed our open registration process.  For those who are still interested in signing up, you can still do so at any time by clicking on the Registration tab for this web site and following the prompts to get registered.  Initially, all new players will be waitlisted and we will let players in as space allows. We are just about full in all ages but we will continue to have a few spots open in some age groups.  We do continue to have a bit more room in our 4U Small Ball league, 5U Shetland Blue league and 13U-14U Pony league where sign ups tend to lag a bit, but any players should sign up as soon as possible to maximize their chances of being admitted in any age group.   If we cannot get a player in off the wait list, we would of course provide a 100% refund,  For more info on registration, click on the title for more info! Thanks, NYO Baseball

The Coming of Age of Old Man Football

I swore to myself that I wasn’t going to get emotionally involved.  I’ve been down that road before with 8 yr. old football - another great championship run.  I wasn’t going to let it happen again.  The fact that I am actually having this discussion with myself is a bonus for my son and my family - championships are hard to come by, let alone winning one.  We watched it rain non-stop for 14 hours.  The temperature dropped like a lead zeppelin.  The threat of postponement loomed large. Finally the rain stopped only to watch the thermometer settle in at 38 degrees.   Click Picture to Read More.

Thank You!

During the Pink Out games last week, several members of the Lovett Lions came out and showed their support for the Pee-Wee Lions!  Thanks to the Lions and all the players who came out to NYO in support of breast cancer awareness!

The 2014 NYO Fall Fastpitch season came to an exciting end Saturday and Sunday, November 1-2, 2014, with three well-played tournaments.  In the Fall Rookie league, the Orange Dolphins topped the Pink Crushers in the tournament championship on Sunday afternoon.  In the Fall Minors, the Royals were able to accomplish what the major league Royals could not -- finishing off with a win in the final game, beating the Pink Chaos 7-5.  In the Fall Majors, the Killer Cotton Candies put two runners on with two outs in the bottom of the last inning, but the Cyclones held them off for a thrilling 5-4 win.

Thanks to all the parents, coaches and players for being a part of NYO Fastpitch this fall.  The girls showed great spirit and sportsmanship in their play this weekend.  We hope to see everyone in the spring of 2015!

Pink out at Knights vs Golden Bears Game

The roaring cheers you heard in Buckhead last night were coming from the Pee Wee field.  The HIES Golden Bears and Pace Knights faced each other as the only two undefeated Pee Wee teams in one of this week’s PINK OUT games.  The game was focused on raising Breast Cancer Awareness and players celebrated by wearing pink arm bands, shoe laces, socks and shirts.  The stands were decorated with pink balloons and fans sporting pink.  HIES and Pace Varsity and junior varsity football players, cheerleaders and mascot attended cheering on their prospective teams.  The 7-8 years old players loved having their support.  The Knights pulled it out 13-7.  Both teams played hard, showed great sportsmanship and left with memories that will last a life time.  Click for Golden Bears photo.

Join the Pink Out at the Park this Week!

“I remember it like it was yesterday!”

Yes, we have all said it at sometime of our life and I am sure we all will say it many more times in the future. Well, I distinctly remember my oldest son on his first day of NYO Football tryouts when he was just 7 years old. It had already been a long day for our family and we were running late! (So late, that we were actually the last family to tryout that day.) Stress levels were high on the ride to the park knowing that we might miss tryouts altogether and that we had just left the oncologists office as my wife was in the midst of her battle with breast cancer. She was weak and nauseous, my son was tired and anxious, and I was doing everything to get him to the park in mental football fashion. My mental “fashion” would have to wait.
