Check out the NYBA on social media for general info. & updates throughout the 2022 season.
The decision has been made to make the 10U age group full travel starting in 2023, instead of tournament team/Minors. For those not wanting to travel there will be a Community Rec option in conjunction with Farmington and Lakeville. The Community Rec league will offer our players an opportunity to be introduced to competition with other communities in a fun and skill appropriate way! We are excited for this option to help grow our players and our program! Watch for more information to come as the season approaches.
Watch for 2023 registration to open on or around January 15!
If you are interested in being considered for one of these open positions please send an email to Kristin Holz, firstname.lastname@example.org

The NYBA will be collecting checks in advance for the DIBs volunteer program, requiring a commitment of 5 hours per FAMILY. Families are required to provide a check for $300 prior to participating in tryouts/evaluations for Travel and Minors or prior to the start of the season for all younger leagues. These checks will be held during the season. If at the end of the 2022 season the family has completed the required volunteer hours their check will be destroyed. However, if a family’s volunteer requirement has not been met by the end of the 2022 NYBA season, their check will be deposited into the NYBA account. Please note, if a deposited check does not have sufficient funds when it is deposited a return fee will be invoiced to the member and/or applied to future registrations.
Volunteering is essential to any youth organization and we strongly encourage you to be involved in helping to make the season a successful one for our kids. However, if you think your family will not be able to fulfill the DIBs requirement we are now offering a buyout option. To participate in the buyout option, families must submit a check for $200. Buyout checks are also due at tryouts/evaluations or prior to the season as the usual DIBs checks are. The buyout checks will be deposited at the time of receipt prior to the start of the season.
Families of rostered coaches, board members and travel team managers will be exempt from the required hours associated with DIBs.
We will be posting DIBs hours on our website under the DIBs tab where you can claim tasks to fulfill your volunteer obligation.
