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 (DIBs checks held until certification is verified), 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.
As a volunteer organization we rely on parent volunteers to coach our In-House teams! Coaches are a MUST for the our kids to be out on the field playing baseball. As stated above, rostered coaches are given DIBs credits for their time. We work to pair coaches in coaching groups to help distribute the workload as we know everyone is busy with family, work and vacations during the summer. As part of the registration you will have the chance to indicate your willingness to coach.
If you indicate your CAN coach, please plan to be a part of the coaching team for your child. Coaches will be assigned to the same team as their player. If something changes and you are no longer able to fulfill these duties please let us know right away as last minute changes and changes after the teams are rostered can greatly impact the team.
Coaches will also be asked to complete the TRUSTED COACHES certification course every 3 years. This course covers background checks, Safe Sport, basic coaching ideals and first aid which are required by law for coaches in youth sports to complete. We will send a link to the course prior to the season and ask that these are completed by the FIRST WEEK of the season so receive you DIBs credits for coaching. **DIBs checks will be collected and held until Trusted Coaches certification can be verified
02/22/21 - As the season approaches the NYBA Board will continue to monitor the COVID situation and recommendations as provided by the State and MDH. We will also wait to receive direction from our governing bodies MBL/MBT and MYAS as to the protocols we will be required to put in place. Please know that we hold the safety of our participants as a top priority and hope to have a plan in place for all kids to safely enjoy baseball this season. Refunds will be available for any registrants who are not comfortable playing at the time the season starts so please register your player without concern.
**Please note: if you choose to purchase the insurance at the end of the registration process you are welcome to do so, however, those claims are through a private party. Insurance is not necessarily required to receive a full refund, although NYBA may recoup uniform expenses if already ordered. If you choose to request a refund from NYBA we are not able to refund any portion of your insurance purchase cost, only the league cost.**
