The Fall Ball registration period is now closed. Teams are being formed and practices will begin next week! You should hear from your coaches via email regarding your first practice. For our children's safety, all managers and assistant coaches are background checked prior to being allowed to coach at BYS. They are volunteers and usually have their own children playing ball. Please assist them by stepping up to help the team out as best you can.
All players will need to turn in a completed Medical Release form to their team manager.
All teams will need a parent to step up to become a Parent Rep, this person communicates team news such as practice times, places, upcoming events, and informs everyone when their team is responsible for concession duty, coordinates team snack assignments for TB & CP teams
All teams need to rake the base lanes after practices, before and after games.
All teams will be assigned concession duty and we will always strive to schedule it when your team is not playing.
Team t-shirts and hats are being ordered now and will be distributed before the first game on September 10th
