2022 – 2023 Coach Registrations
1. How do I request a coach?
With the number of athletes in our program, we are unable to accommodate special requests for coaches. Any player whose parent/guardian has volunteered to coach will automatically be placed on the same team as their parent/guardian. However We do keep rosters each year and as long as a player signs up on time we do our best to place back on the team from the previous year.
2. When do I have to have all fees paid?
All registration fees are due no later than December 2, 2022. Fees can be paid by Credit Card in TeamSnap, by cash or by check made payable to WCYBA. Any player with outstanding fees will not be able to play in any league games until all fees are paid in full.
