When does registration start?

Online registration for the spring season (Feb - May), typically begins around late November or early December in the previous year.  The registration event(s) at the park (or alternate location) will follow in December or early January.  The in-person registration events are for those members that choose to register in person, as well as being the time for all registrants to complete payments, uniform sizing, collect raffle tickets, and sign up as manager or coach.

As of the 2017 season, COYBSA will play a limited winter ball season.  Registration for that season will run during the months of July and August.

Top

I've finished my registration online.  What do I do now?

Please make sure you select the red-colored, "Finish Registration" button after inputting each of your players (this step is often forgotten) so that you can complete the necessary agreements (fundraiser, snack bar option, and terms & conditions).  Following that you can choose to pay online or wait to complete payment in person.

There will one or more registration events, usually held at the park (weather permitting), which you need to attend to finalize the registration.  If you did not pay online, you will complete payment at this time.  Otherwise, at this final registration, you will pick up raffle tickets, complete uniform sizing, and address any specific concerns or requests (manager applications, team issues, volunteer opportunities).

No. Siblings in the same division will be automatically placed on the same team (unless specifically not requested), but in general we do not allow players to be linked with a specific coach, manager, or teammate.

No.  This is considered a link which we do not allow (see the earlier response).

Does COYBSA host a winterball league?

Beginning with the 2017 season, COYBSA will host a league for winter softball, in the 6U - 10U divisions, and baseball, in the Coach Pitch thru Mustang divisions.  Otherwise, Glendora, La Verne, San Dimas and West Covina offer winter leagues, for more information try one of the links below:

If you manage a team and would like access to the fields for practice, contact a member of the COYBSA Executive Board (COYBSA Board)

Do I need to tryout if I was on a team/all-star last year?  What if I can not make tryouts?

In the spirit of fairness, we encourage all players to tryout each year. If an experienced player (i.e., known by the drafting managers) does not tryout, they will be entered into the draft as any other pick. If a new or unknown player does not participate in tryouts, they will be added to the draft as a hat pick for random assignment to a team.

Top

What will the schedule be for practices/games during the season?

Practice schedules are determined by the coach of your team, but are usually 2 times a week.  Starting in March, there will be 2 regular season games per week (one weekday and one Friday/weekend) until early May.   Following the regular season, there may be a final tournament for each division with the schedule to be determined by the board of directors.

Top

Can I get a refund if my child changes their mind about playing?

The costs associated with registration are refundable up to the time of tryouts.  After tryouts have been completed, all fees are non-refundable.

Top

I would like my child to play up a level, is this possible?  Should we tryout for both divisions?

You must try out for any division that you would like to have your child play.  If you decide to play in both divisions, you will be required to pay the associated registration fees for each.

Top

How will I be notified about tryouts for my child?

During registration, each player will be assigned a tryout time that can be found at the top of the receipt/player information sheet or reviewed online at any time after registering.  If in doubt, the blocks of tryout times for each division will be posted online, and you can plan to arrive at the beginning of your respective division's tryout time to be assigned an appropriate slot.

Top

Do you have scholarships or payment plans available to help with the cost of registration?

While there are no specific scholarship programs available, we are committed to making the league available to as many local youth as possible.  Inasmuch, the executive board will work individually with any member to develop a suitably fair and equitable plan that helps them register while allowing the league to maintain its operations.

Top

We had a bad experience with a specific manager.  Can I make sure that my child is not placed/drafted on their team?

We want every child to have the best possible experience while maintaining as fair and equitable team assignment process as possible.  For this reason, any player is allowed to block up to one (1) manager or coach prior to the draft.  Please provide a comment during registration or notify your league director prior to the draft is this is the case.
