COVID-19 Information - updated 05/13/2021

 

To all DYBA softball and baseball families --

DYBA is continuously monitoring changes and updates regarding COVID-19 protocols issued by the State of Illinois and will continue to follow the guidelines set by the Illinois Department of Public Health (IDPH).

As many of you are aware, the IDPH guidelines are not overly clear but in recent days we have received clarification from IDPH and have consulted with the Deerfield Park District regarding the wearing of masks while actively playing baseball and softball.

As of 5/14/21, when the Bridge Phase of Restore Illinois takes effect, DYBA baseball and softball players are no longer required to wear masks while actively playing. Players do have the option to continue to wear masks if they would like. While teams are in the dugouts, at pre and post-game meetings, and other game rituals where distancing is not possible, players will still be required to wear masks.

Coaches and umpires will still be required to wear masks.

Per the Deerfield Park District, distancing and mask requirements for spectators still apply.

We will continue to monitor the IDPH guidelines and update our policy accordingly in coordination with the Deerfield Park District.

We hope you continue to have a wonderful safe season, and good luck to all the girls and boys! DYBA/DYSBA

New Policy Regarding Teammate Requests

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:

  1. All volunteers who would like to coach must be registered as a Coach/Assistant Coach/Manager in the DYBA registration system and must pass the background check process.
  2. For any coach pairing request to be considered, each of the Coaches/Managers must also request each other to ensure the coach requests are mutual. For Example: If Coach Smith requests to be paired with Coach Jones, then Coach Jones must also request to be paired with Coach Smith.
  3. No more than two (2) coach volunteers can request to be placed on the same team with each other.

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.
