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.


Message from the Director of Baseball

We are honored to serve as co-Directors of DYBA Baseball and are looking to build on the success of prior years.  We are excited by the opportunity and look forward to your participation and feedback -- more details to follow.

Over the past three years, DYBA increased the resources to training and it has produced positive results.  Therefore, DYBA will continue to have clinics and group practice events run by the Deerfield High School baseball coaches, as well as many of our own travel baseball coaches.  Before, during and after the seasons, our goal is to allocate the necessary time and space for these clinics and learning experiences.

Outside of any improvements we may enact, as we do each and every year, for DYBA – our first and primary focus is the children of our program.  Regardless of the player’s age or ability, we strive to teach the benefits of baseball as it relates to life.  We need to stress to all the players honesty, and the importance of making good decisions both on and off the baseball field.  We need to stress teamwork, good sportsmanship and attempt to instill a positive working attitude in our young adults.  We, as parents, need to remember that we are here for the kids, not the other way around.

We hope as well, that all parents and players of our organization see and understand what it takes to make a league of this size run productively.  Only a few volunteers put in hundreds of hours to make sure every item from registration to the last games are great experiences for all involved.  Please consider volunteering some time and giving back to this league.  There is no organization more dedicated and productive when it comes to baseball than DYBA.

DYBA T-Ball

 

Eligibility

Children are eligible to play spring/summer T-Ball if they are either in their final year of Pre-Kindergarten or in Kindergarten in the Spring/Summer of 2021.

 

**DYBA T-Ball League Bat Rules**

At the t-ball level, no big barrel bats are allowed. Big Barrel bats are anything with a barrel diameter size of more than 2 1/4". Any such bats will not be allowed to be used at the tball level

 

Schedule

The season begins the first week of April (Phase 4 of Restore Illinois permitting) and continues through early June.  Spring/Summer T-Ball meets once a week on Saturday mornings (approx. 9am or 1030am) and one other night during the week.

Game Structure

T-Ball games are broken into an initial practice and then a 3-inning game immediately after the practice concludes.   All players hit off the tee, bat every inning, positions are rotated, and no score is kept.  The total time is around 1 hour.

Location

Games will be held at Kipling School and South Park school (potentially other locations depending on number of teams)

 

The success of the T-Ball season depends on the volunteer parents.  We are ALWAYS in need of T-Ball Managers and Coaches!  No previous coaching experience is necessary. We can help you though every step of the process.  Games are only one hour long and you get to spend time out on the fields with your child!  If you are interested in coaching then please register through the same process as you signed up your child. There will always be 1 manager per team and then the goal is to have an additional 2-3 coaches per team so do not feel you have to make every game in order to volunteer.
