As the state of Illinois enters Phase 4 of the COVID re-entry, DYBA has released new guidelines for play. Please see below for COVID related documents including the PHASE 4 RETURN TO PLAY GUIDELINES.
Fall-ball softball and baseball families,
Thank you for registering your daughters and sons for one of our fall house leagues! Please review all of the Covid-19 guidelines and procedures on the DYBA home-page before the start of the fall season.
As an affiliate of the Deerfield Park District, we work with the Village of Deerfield on safety measures and protocols. Based on some spectator social distancing issues from the summer leagues, we are asking the following this fall:
Each family of a player is strongly encouraged to either:
1. Limit your family’s spectator group to only parents and siblings of your player, or
2. If non-parents or siblings are attending, limit the total number of spectators for your player to four (4) fans.
This will help with social distancing measures, which will in-turn allow DYBA to continue using our wonderful Deerfield fields. Also, please remember that when social distance of 6 ft cannot be maintained, face coverings are required.
Have a wonderful safe fall season, and good luck to all the girls and boys!
All bleachers will be off limits to spectators. Spectators are required to bring their own seating to the event and will need to practice social distancing. Spectators must stay behind the extended fence line in the outfield. No spectators are allowed in the area deemed for player use. Spectators should also maintain social distancing of six feet between families and spread out around the field and in the common areas. Tents and awnings will not be allowed, however personal umbrellas are allowed.
Spectators are welcome to wear personal protective items but not required to do so if 6ft of social distance can be maintained
Fans will be required to exercise and abide by all social distancing guidelines at all times when on site.
Fans should bring their own chairs and be seated along the foul lines, and in the outfield beyond any fencing or outfield boundaries. Families can sit together but all others must observe the 6-foot guideline or wear a mask.
Spectators should not be interacting with players near the dugout (even if they are family members). If a player requires something from a parent or fan, they should walk over to the spectator.
Thank you as always for your continued support and participation.

RULES FOR DYBA TEAM SELECTION
The DYBA team selection process is designed to create even teams in each division and attempt to create the most competitive and fun balance for all players involved. Every effort is taken to eliminate the possibility of unbalanced teams. For those reasons, DYBA does not allow friendship requests for its Baseball or Softball teams. Requests for placement of a child on a team with another child, a specific coach outside of their own parent/guardian, and/or a carpool group will not be considered.
Simultaneously, acknowledging that parent volunteers are the backbone of the DYBA organization, parent volunteer coaches may request to coach their own child alongside up to one (1) other coach under the following guidelines:
DYBA will then make every effort to place the requesting coaches on the same team. Please note that while every effort will be made, this is not a guarantee.
All siblings/relatives within the same age group will automatically be placed on the same team unless otherwise directed by their parents/guardians.
To request that coaches be placed on the same team, please follow these guidelines. Coach requests are only accepted in the comments section of the coach registration system once registration for that specific league opens. No phone or email requests will be accepted. All correctly submitted coach pairing requests will be recorded for consideration, but, as always, not guaranteed. The DYBA League Board and each of the Baseball/Softball Directors reserve all final decisions on teams to accommodate extenuating circumstances as may be needed.
