Spring 2021 Registration Reminder
| As a reminder, signups for the BYBA Spring 2021 season are open now! Details about the signup process are online here: https://byba.us/registration/. Rest assured that the Board’s top priority is to provide our youth with the most “real baseball” activity allowed by health guidelines.|
The good news is that the California Department of Public Health recently issued new guidelines regarding youth sports (https://www.cdph.ca.gov/Programs/CID/DCDC/Pages/COVID-19/outdoor-indoor-recreational-sports.aspx). These guidelines designate baseball as an outdoor activity that should be able to proceed (with certain limitations) in the “red tier”. The next update from the state is expected January 4th. Again, we are committed to doing all that we can to provide the best baseball experience possible, within these guidelines.
We recently completed a small trial fall-ball program for some older kids, which included new COVID-19 safety guidelines and protocols executed by players, coaches, and families. The program successfully provided players an opportunity to get back on the field in a safe manner for the first time since March. The program also enabled us to implement, test and refine our COVID-19 protocols and guidelines to put us in a solid, well-prepared position for the spring. Thank you to the volunteer coaches, the players, and the families whose commitment to the safety protocols and open communication to help keep our community safe. We look forward to that same level of strong support in the spring.
We are not charging for registration at this time, as we expect to collect fees closer to the season start date (slated for mid-February). Fees will be consistent with, but probably discounted from last years fees (depending on decisions regarding uniforms and umpires). If we are not able to execute on various aspects of our season due to public health restrictions, we will adjust our fees accordingly. Financial aid is available for those families in our community experiencing hardship.
Thank you for being a part of BYBA and for your continued support of the league! Reminder: sign up now, and remind your friends and neighbors to do the same!
