13/14 Age Group Changes for 2019Updated Thursday January 10, 2019 by RYBA.
For several years now RYBA has been challenged with platforms and participation when transitioning into 13/14 age group. We tried a different approach last season which made our 13/14 age group more competitive and had the largest participation rate we have seen in over 7 years. We will continue our transition for these age groups in 2019 to be a Coach Select league for both ages. We will require a Team registration fee of $350 for 2019. Coaches will need to register a team through our registration process. Paper players registrations will need to be turned in to the player agent prior to league start.
RYBA will schedule a minimum of eight week day games for the spring season at Hickey Park and provide the officials, fields, and lights. We already have several interested “Coaches” from around the River Valley. In addition, you will be USSSA recreational sanctioned and insured for the league. The sanctioning will not interfere wtih any travel teams that play on the weeekend, you will just be required to sanction you team as usual. Interested Coaches may contact any RYBA Board member for more information. (If you are a player who wishes to participate in the 13u or 14u league and you are not on a team RYBA player agent will assist the youth with placement, current contact information can be found on our contact us page)
