Hello League Families!
Covid 19 is affecting us all in different ways but we are happy to working towards baseball and softball in the weeks ahead. See our latest league update here on the site.
We are welcoming players into any divisions for which registrations are presently open, including families from others towns. We want to try to give all a chance to play this year. For late registrations we will do everything reasonable to find a spot for that player but draft timing and roster logistics mean there's a risk some may not be able to be added. Therefore we'll work on a first come, first served basis per division as the finalize our season and teams.
The annual open meeting and elections were held on Oct 22nd. Thanks to those who took the time to participate both in person and remotely via zoom.
The board was happy to hear appreciation voiced by league parents on the work done to help make this year's seasons happen despite the additional challenges presented by COVID.
In addition to announcing the election results, we want to take a moment and thank those who are stepping away from elected positions, including VP of maintenance Andrew Kelley, Registrar Jennifer Miller, and President Paul Salera. We and the league are grateful for your service.
The board recognized Paul Salera, outgoing President, with a plaque celebrating his over 15 years of volunteering with the league. Paul shared some comments with the group on teamwork that has been critical for the league to continually work to improve what we can provide for the youth in our league.
The elections were held for all elected positions. The results with full board listing can be found here:

The league board and subcommittee have been working hard to develop guidelines and procedures to enable the safe return to play for our players.
As of today, June 6th, we are happy to release these to the league community. There are 2 major elements for you to be read and review:
Return To Play Guidelines
Theses are the specific rules and expectations for participants of all types (players, parents, coaches, etc). These define rules and processes to keep everyone and the league safe and compliant with broader directives.
Covid Waiver to Play
The waiver is a document to indicate your understanding of the guidelines and associated risks. A signed copy needs to be submitted to coach or league officer prior to participation.
It's expected that guidelines may need to be updated as state and local guidance evolves. We have created a static webpage to serve as home for the latest release RYBSA Guidelines. You can find them now and in the future here: https://www.rybsaonline.com/covid
Thanks and looking forward to seeing our league families at the fields soon!
