BYBA Spring Registration Is Now Open!

Registration is now open for the upcoming Spring 2015 season.  This is for all players, coaches and volunteers.

We will have three walk-in registration sessions (see below for schedule). Players who are new to BYBA MUST come to one of the three walk-in sessions so that we can get a copy of your child’s birth certificate or passport for age verification purposes. If you can bring a copy that we can keep, this will help us out. You can register your child in person at the walk-in session, or in advance, online.

The walk-in sessions also provide a good opportunity to meet BYBA board members and get any questions that you may have answered.

The dates for the walk-in sessions are as follows. All sessions are from 6 pm to 8 pm at the Burlingame Rec Center, in the computer room:

  • Wednesday, October 15
  • Tuesday, October 28
  • Wednesday, November 19

Here are the instructions for registration (available only after October 1st):

  1. Go to this link: http://burlingameyba.sportssignup.com/site
  2. If you are new, click on “Create an Account” and follow the step by step instructions. Once completed, return to the main page where you can register a player or an adult.
  3. If you already have an account, log in using your user ID email and password.
  4. Choose “Register to Play/Participate
  5. Select the player’s name that you want to register
  6. Click “Register Now”
  7. You should see the “Spring 2015″ registration session.
  8. Select the appropriate Division based on the player’s age.
  9. Proceed with following the steps all the way through to check out and payment
  10. Please note: If you are registering as an adult volunteer (coach, assistant coach, or other) you must do two things. Your registration is not complete until you:
    1. Register as per above instructions
    2. Complete a background check. This is a requirement for all adult volunteers. This is a separate step in the process from simply registering yourself as a coach.  It can be found by going back to the same page where Spring 2015 registration was available.

BYBA offers financial assistance to families in need of this. You can apply online for this, or confidentially discuss with a board member.

Remembering Steve Chase

Dear BYBA Families:

As many of you know, it was with great sadness that we learned that Steve Chase (long time BYBA coach and father of three wonderful boys) suffered a heart attack last Friday evening and passed away.  Steve’s family asked that I let all of you know that a Memorial Service will be held in Steve’s honor on Friday, May 30th at 10:30 a.m. at St. Catherine’s Catholic Church in Burlingame.  A reception celebrating Steve’s life will immediately follow the service, location not yet determined.

Steve’s family will have a ‘Private Rosary’ the night prior to the service.

In addition, this year, BYBA will be dedicating our annual June Invitational Baseball Tournament in memory of Steve.  Tee-shirts recognizing Steve will be for sale with all proceeds going into college accounts for his three boys.

A specific bank account for the college fund has been established.  The account is titled “Alannah Chase (DBA) Chase Boys College Fund”.   Anyone who would like to help should send checks to:  Chase Boys College Fund, 507 Dorchester Road, San Mateo, CA 94402.

Please forward this message to those who may wish to attend Steve’s service or donate to the Chase Boys College Fund.


Mike Brunicardi

President, BYBA
