Play hard and play to win, but win or lose with class

Welcome to the Lake Zurich Baseball and Softball Association

LZBSA provides quality baseball and fastpitch softball programs for the youth of Lake Zurich, Hawthorn Woods, Kildeer, Long Grove and adjacent communities. Dedicated to providing safe and enjoyable recreation and travel programs that teach a love for the game of baseball/softball, we stress game fundamentals, sportsmanship, discipline, teamwork, and a competitive spirit, all of which assist our youth in becoming responsible and productive adults.

2016 Discount Cards FAQ's

Dear LZBSA Families:

This year, LZBSA chose to incorporate four (4) discount cards with your registration as our fundraising program for 2016.  Managers have distributed them to their teams (except for Rookie League) and a couple of questions have arisen.

Just to clarify,

  1. The maximum discount cards paid for in a household are eight (four cards per two players).
  2. The cost of these cards are included in your registration fee.
  3. You can choose to use them yourself or sell them for $20 each, which in essence reduces your registration fees.

If you would like to purchase additional cards to give as gifts or use for yourself, please email the website at

Hope you all have a great season.


Please see links below for registration options for your child for the upcoming baseball and softball season. 

Early-Bird fees still available for 


ROOKIE & COLT - extra $25 per person will begin on May 1st
