Welcome to the start of the 2018 BYBA Season. Registration is now open, click on the registration bar at the top of the page to register online. We will also have in person registration available Saturday January 13th from 10:00am to 1:00pm at the Topton Borough Hall. Fundraiser forms will be available on the website and at Geist sporting goods starting January 13th, they will also be available at the in-person registration that day.
This is our first full season using the new website so unless your player played fall ball you will need to fill in all registration information again. You register yourself first creating the account and then add your players and register them. If you need any help or have questions please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Our goal at BYBA is to bring a quality baseball experience to the kids. In order to do that we do have ever increasing expenses that must be covered. We’ve been fortunate the last several years to have some donations that have allowed us to make major capital improvements to our facilities without having to increase our fees. However after reviewing our projected registrations with the projected expenses we are going to have a small $10 increase for the 10U and 12U age groups this year.
We felt we owed you (our customers) an explanation upfront on the increase. Since 2015 Equipment fees are up 15.5% (this includes having to buy all new team bats for each age group due to the bat rule changes for 2018, replacing outdated catcher equipment last year, etc.). Umpire fees have increased 11.5% (10U and 12U), League fees are up 11.6% (10U and 12U), and Utilities (electric, trash, propane, port-a-potty rental) are up 8.5%. We will continue to look at ways to improve efficiency and keep cost reasonable while still providing a quality experience for our players as always.
If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact a BYBA board member.
Thank You, BYBA
