Registration Closing on 2/28
Folks, please be advised that registration closes at midnight on 2/28/21. It may seem early to some but we need sufficient time to order uniforms and equipment, secure volunteers, develop teams and schedules, etc. Registration requests after 2/28/21 should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org. HYBSA’s goal is to allow every child who wants to play baseball or softball the opportunity to do so, but decisions to allow late registration will be made on a case by case basis taking into account roster sizes and the availability of uniforms fort that particular age group.
As we head into 2021, Covid-19 continues to impact our approach. The good news is that we developed and implemented sound practices last summer and fall that kept kids safe while providing the kids a positive experience and we will implement similar practices this spring. The bad news is that the March indoor clinics are not an option and our parade / carnival is once again cancelled. That said, as soon as the town fields are opened, we will begin scheduling practices and games will begin in late April. In the meantime, do your best to get your sons and daughters out there playing catch and when you can taking some swings.
People have begun inquiring about which day(s) and times of the week their age groups will be playing. We don’t expect things to be drastically different than years past, but the town is receiving some additional requests given disruptions earlier this year and they have yet to allocate fields to any youth sports for the spring. As always, we will be working with other sports to eliminate conflicts by age group to the extent possible and as soon as we have some clarity, we will get that information out to you. We recognize that most families are managing several moving parts.
We will be back in touch once more information is available. Please spread the word about registration closing to your friends and neighbors.
