Additional Registration Information

+ Volunteer Coaches Needed!

Each season we have approx. 1600 players and over 100 teams. Almost all of which are exclusively coached by parent volunteers. Please consider registering as a coach/asst coach. No experience necessary

Returning coaches are required to register and complete all requirements annually.

+ Uniform Policy & Sizing Charts

We strongly recommend all families review our Uniform Policy and Sizing Charts before completing registration. Uniform sizes are selected during the registration process, and we are unable to guarantee being able to swap out incorrect sizes.

+ BAYS Travel Teams / Tryouts

Players in Grade 4-6 (and 3, Spring Only) must be selected to a BAYS Travel team via tryouts and our annual selection process. All players entering the relevant grades are eligible to be considered.

In Grades 7-8, all players are placed on BAYS Travel teams. The first 4 teams of each gender are selected via our tryout / team selection process each year, with remaining players balanced on additional teams that also compete in the BAYS Travel league.

+ How Are Non-Travel Teams Formed?

To form teams in our NSCJA & NSCCL programs, along with 7/8th Grade ‘balanced’ teams, the following criteria is use in order of priority:

  1. Pairing volunteer coaches with their children
  2. Player evaluations/skill level where available
  3. Balance of schools on each team. No “school based teams”
  4. Balance of grades in any dual grade age groups
  5. New teams are formed each Fall-Spring year. Teams typically stay the same or similar between Fall and Spring with the exception of any necessary movement based on changes in registration
  6. After criteria 1-5, we will consider ONE FRIEND request. However, it is not possible to honor all requests.

+ Late Registrations

Registration remains open after our registration deadlines, and we do try to add late players to teams where space is available. However, by default, late players are waitlisted with no guarantee of being placed on a roster.
