Baseball is on! Sign ups close 1/29. Season starts 2/22.

As we move closer to the start of the 2021 Spring Season, we are very excited to get our kids safely back out on the diamond. Currently, we expect practices to begin on schedule the week of February 22nd. At this time, we are going to move our athletes off the waiting list, and ask you all to finalize registration payment (you should receive an email tonight asking you to complete registration, if your child is on the waitlist). If you are not already on the waiting list, you can register via https://byba.us/registration/. Registration will close on January 29th.

We will begin our season with Spring Training, under the “purple tier” system we used safely for our Fall Ball trial program. This includes many COVID-19 protocols including full-time mask wearing and the use of stable cohorts of limited size, as allowed by local government. When we move into the “red tier”, we will transition quickly to a program that accommodates smaller teams and a game schedule.  As we’ve stated in previous emails, your BYBA Board is committed to providing our youth athletes with the best, most realistic baseball experience possible this season, within the limits prescribed by the county and state, while ensuring the health and safety of our children as well.    The core strength of BYBA is our all-volunteer organization. COVID health mandates require us to have a larger pool of coaches and health/safety monitors to manage and meet health/safety protocols for Spring 2021.  That means our volunteers will be more important than ever before, this season.  We encourage all of you to consider being a coach/volunteer.  If you haven’t signed up yet, please register–now is the time–no baseball experience is necessary! In addition to coaches, we are looking for 1-2 parent volunteers per cohort, who will not need to coach, but will help with check-in and COVID protocols.  The guidelines can be  reviewed here:  https://www.cdph.ca.gov/Programs/CID/DCDC/Pages/COVID-19/outdoor-indoor-recreational-sports.aspx.

Reminder: finish the registration or sign up now, and remind your friends and neighbors to do the same!
