Our deadline is firm. At 12:01am February 12th, all divisions will transition to only allow registration onto our wait lists. Once all players from the draft are placed onto teams, if there are any open roster spots, those will be filled from the wait lists. Any person registering after the deadline will be charged a $25 late fee, no exceptions.
Each person that plays with or volunteers for CFBBA needs to have an account. All persons residing in the same household OR supporting the same children should be on the same account. To create an account, you will need to click Login (in the top menu on the page). Then follow the prompts to create a new account. Once you have created an account, you will be able to register. Payments are taken online.
League Age is determined by a player's age as of May 1, 2022 . Please visit the League Age Calculator for help in determining your child's league age.
We understand that USSSA does offer this, and we understand and sympathize with kids that would like to play with their classmates. However, USSSA plays with singular age groups (6U, 7U, 8U, etc...). Given that CFBBA plays with combination age groups (5/6, 7/8, 9/10, etc...), we do not feel that it is in the best interest of all children playing, due to safety concerns, to offer this exception. For example, if we allowed an 11 year old 5th grader to play with their 10 year old classmates, they'd also be playing with 9 year old players.
This is a very black and white rule. We do not allow playing down in age.
Yes. We do allow playing up by one year of age. For instance, a child that is league age 10, may play up to 11/12. A child that is league age 11 may not play up to 13/14, unless parents contact the VP of both age divisions to discuss and gain approval.
No. We simply cannot accommodate the scheduling associated with players playing on multiple teams. We do accommodate coaches that coach multiple teams, 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 a younger) division is a contradiction to our pool player rules, which are necessary in our league.
If your child already belongs to a team, they will be placed on the indicated team. If your child needs a team, they will be placed on that division's draft team. Once registration is over (the deadline is February 11th), placement of the draft players onto teams will begin and should be completed by February 14th. If your child was assigned to a draft team, look to hear from their coach no later than February 17th regarding uniforms, practice times/locations, and things of that nature.
The best way to make this happen would be to reach out to one of the AA coaches and see if they have room on their roster. You can also just sign your child up for the AA division, and they'll go into the draft. Please be advised that if you sign a child up for the AA division, and there are no roster spots available, we will move your child to the single A division.
Contact your child’s coach ASAP so that they can communicate this to the Registration Coordinator and/or the age group VP. When this happens, we'll need approval from the coach and the parent to make the correction.
No, there are no tryouts. Children from the draft are placed on teams, mainly based on comparable geographical location or schools they attend, WHEN POSSIBLE. This is to make it easier to schedule practice locations and around school events, but more importantly, so that kiddos can potentially play with school friends or kids that could feed into the same high school. Sometimes, though, it just isn’t possible. This depends on the division, how many teams need players, and how many players are in the draft.
Please be sure to indicate this in the “belong to a team” section when registering. We will do our best to make this happen, but we can’t make any promises. If this isn't noted in the comments prior to teams being formed, it can cause teams to be short players if we move players around, so it's very important that you make this note when registering your child. Forgot to do that, and it's before the deadline? (February 11th) Please reach out to the registration coordinator immediately and make sure you get a reply to confirm this update was made.
Please see our locations page.
Yes, you can. We do not have residency restrictions or boundaries.
Contact the VP of your age group. VP contact information can be found by visiting the Contacts page.
