PLEASE READ ALL INFORMATION BEFORE REGISTERING A TEAM
ABOUT TEAM ROSTERS
Teams can submit roster information online or via mail.
- If submitting rosters at time of registration, teams can submit rosters then and there online with no specific minimum number of players with a maximum of ten. If more than ten players will be on a team, then the coach must mail-in the additional player names and e-mail addresses to H.Y.B.A., Inc., Attn: Additional Roster Information Enclosed, P.O. 361, Ellicott City, MD 21041, delivering the additional roster information one week before the start of the upcoming season.
- If a team is registering the team roster offline, then teams must mail-in the complete team roster to include every players’ name and e-mail address to H.Y.B.A., Inc., Attn: Team Roster Enclosed, P.O. 361, Ellicott City, MD 21041, delivering the Team Roster one week before the start of the upcoming season.
ABOUT FORMING A TEAM
Teams are composed of, at a minimum, five players. For teams with less than five players, teams may be assigned additional players from the general registration of the applicable grade division. 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 non-travel team has all high school freshman and one high school sophomore, then the team would automatically be placed in the high school sophomore division. Travel teams are automatically placed one grade level above if not enough travel teams exist to form a travel-only team. 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 applicable Spring or Fall Season. One coach per team present at every game must be 21 years of age before the start of either the Spring or Fall Season.
