CYBA Announces Divisional Age Alignment Change for 2017

To our CYBA families,

FOR THE 2017 SEASON

Intermediate Division - will consist of LL age 12-13 ( LL age 11 will evaluate for remaining roster spots)

Minors Division AAA - will consist of LL age 9-11 ( LL age 8 may request in writing an evaluation for remaining roster spots)

AA Division - LL age 8

A Division- LL age 7

Rookie Division - LL age 5-6

Little League age chart link:
http://www.littleleague.org/leagueofficers/determine_league_age/league_age_calculator.htm

Using an evaluation process to determine level of play is used in many towns and other Little League programs. We fully understand that both "change" and an "evaluation process" opens a program up to skepticism and criticism and we understand the responsibility we have to make sure the process is fair and it is clear. In the end we will have an even stronger program, creating Divisions that will give all kids the opportunity to LEARN, DEVELOP, LEAD and move on....

Change is never easy, but there is no doubt that 2017 will be another great year for Coventry Baseball. If anyone wants to discuss how these changes may effect your child or any other concerns I absolutely welcome the conversation. Please reach out to me.

Enjoy the off season, stay safe and rest your arms. Registrations and Winter Conditioning will begin the first of the year. Please check our website for any updates.

CYBA Adopts Volunteer Opt-Out Policy

Beginning with the 2015 season, the Board of Directors has adopted a volunteer opt-out policy.

CYBA is a volunteer organization that needs the support of the community (especially parents) to operate and provide a great atmosphere for their kids to enjoy baseball. During the registration process, parents are asked if they would be willing to volunteer some of their time in support of CYBA. Adult volunteers are needed and expected to volunteer during the course of a season in any of the areas to include field clean up day, Snack Shack staffing, daily field maintenance, fundraising, or many other areas were we need your help and support. With the new policy structure, at time of registration an additional $50 fee per family will be assessed. This will remove families that do not wish to participate from the responsibility of volunteering their time.

For families that choose to volunteer their time in support of the league, by completing 3 hours of volunteer service, a refund of the fee will be processed by the league treasurer. Team managers will be provided a time sheet that will be completed for each family to record time volunteered. The full 3 hours must be completed to obtain the refund, as no partial reimbursements will be issued.
