HYBA Spring 2020 New Start Date & COVID-19 Update

COVID-19 Situational Update

HYBA-Logo

 

In response to the COVID-19 epidemic and the decision by the State Superintendent of Maryland Schools to close all schools for the remainder of the 2019-2020 academic year, HYBA’s Spring and Fall 2020 Seasons are officially canceled.

The Spring and Fall 2020 cancellation decision was not made lightly. We know this is a major disappointment to our young people. We attempted everything humanely possible for our young people to safely participate in the Spring and Fall 2020 programs. Thank you for your encouraging e-mails and to all those who volunteered.

HYBA will open the Spring 2021 registration soonest. In response to the COVID-19 epidemic, HYBA decided not to raise individual and team registrations for the Spring 2021 Season. We plan to make the Spring 2021 Season the best yet and cannot wait for our young athletes to participate in the great sport of basketball again.

More information about the Spring 2021 Season will be forthcoming soonest. Please stay safe during these times.

Sincerely,

HYBA Spring Registration Committee

Team Registration Instructions

REGISTERING A TEAM ONLINE

Beginning Spring 2020, registering a team is now easier than ever!

We have spread-headed the team registration process. When a coach or club administrator registers a team, after registration is complete, you will be able to select Visit Team Page from your account dashboard. Once there, click on Roster, then Manage Roster Invites. The Manage Roster Invites webpage is where you will invite via e-mail all the players and staff for you team.

PLEASE ENSURE YOUR PLAYERS COMPLETE THIS NECESSARY STEP. PLAYERS WHO DO NOT ACCEPT TEAM INVITATIONS WILL BE UNABLE TO PARTICIPATE IN THE PROGRAM ON YOUR TEAM.

REGISTERING A TEAM VIA ON PAPER / MAIL

  • A check in the amount of $500.00, which covers the registration of the entire team in the Spring or Fall seasons
  • A complete Team Roster mailed in with the registration fee and e-mailed to [email protected]
  • Head Coaches instruct all parents and legal guardians of all players to agree to all terms and register an account on www.HYBA.org.

ABOUT TEAM ROSTERS
- Do not instruct your players to register as individuals.
- Do not submit a team registration, then pull from those already registered as individuals.
- Do not continually add players once your Team Roster is submitted. Only those players listed on your roster and with registered accounts on www.HYBA.org will be allowed to participate.
Not following the previously mentioned guidelines creates an overhead burden against the foundational principles of HYBA.


ABOUT FORMING A TEAM

  • Teams are composed of, at a minimum, six players
  • For teams with less than six players, teams may be assigned additional players from the general-individual registration of the applicable grade division
  • For teams with more than ten players, only ten uniforms will be provided per team
  • To guarantee league placement of one’s team, teams must be submitted before before the registration deadlines: for the Spring season, the deadline is March 1; and for the Fall season, the deadline is August 1


ABOUT LEAGUE PLACEMENT

Unless special circumstances exist, teams will be placed in the league of their oldest player.  For example, if a team has all high school freshman and one high school sophomore, then the team would automatically be placed in the high school sophomore division. To know if your team is eligible for a special circumstance exception, you must receive oral confirmation from the Director of HYBA at (410)461-7694.


ABOUT COACHES FOR TEAMS

All Head Coaches must be 21 years of age before the start of the Spring or Fall Season. One coach per team at every game must be 21 years of age before the start of the Spring or Fall Season. NO EXCEPTIONS TO THIS RULE.
