Coach Specific FAQs

Last Updated: Feb 12th, 2022

Click Log In in the top right corner of the home page and create an account, if you don’t already have one.  Once logged in, you’ll click to Apply as Head Coach.  You’ll register yourself as the Head Coach.  During the registration process, you will be asked a series of questions regarding your team name, whether or not you will need draft players, how many, a list of players on your roster, etc… Please be sure to complete the registration process completely.

Each player will need to create an account through the CFBBA site - see theregistration FAQs. During the registration process, they will need to choose “yes” that they are on a coach’s "already formed team" and indicate your team’s information.  This is very important for them to be placed on your team.) Once the Registration Coordinator sees the player is registered, notices that your team is mentioned, and cross references with the roster that you submit, the player will be assigned to your team.  It is YOUR responsibility to be sure that each of your players is registered by the deadline (February 11th).

No.  We simply cannot accommodate or support the scheduling associated with players playing on multiple teams.  We do accommodate coaches that coach multiple teams in our league, but not individual players.  It is also not allowed because a player playing in, for instance, an AA (or older) division, is considered to be more advanced.  Allowing them to also play in a single A (or younger) division is a contradiction to our pool player rules, which are necessary in our league.

We follow USSSA rules, with division specific caveats posted on our website.  The specific caveats are discussed at the mandatory coaches’ meetings (see Important Dates).  We do not honor the report card rule because unlike USSSA, we have combined league ages, 7/8, 9/10, 11/12, etc... That's too big of a gap in ages.  For example:  If we allowed a league age 11yo 5th grader to play with their league age 10yo classmates, they'd also be playing with/against league age 9yo 4th grade players (some league age 8 turning 9 over the summer).  We do sympathize with the situation, but it's just not something that we can allow, due to safety concerns, because of our combined age groups.

Simply register as a head coach, submit the background check, pick a team name, and indicate the number of players that you'd like from the draft.  If you have any questions, that are not answered in the FAQs, your point of contact will be the the VP of the age group you are coaching.  VP Contact Information can be found by visiting the Contacts page.
