ONLINE REGISTRATION!! And other pertinent information! (TRYOUTS, SEASON START!)

THE ONLINE REGISTRATION SITE IS NOW ACTIVE AND CAN BE FOUND HERE!!!!

IF YOU FILLED OUT A REGISTRATION EARLIER, YOU WILL NEED TO DO ANOTHER REGISTRATION BECAUSE THE ONE YOU DID WAS IN TEST MODE. PLEASE DO NOT ASSUME YOUR REGISTRATION WAS VALID!!!

I am so sorry that there was this confusion today. I set it on a schedule so it would be available but I forgot to do one little thing and of course that is what caused the problem.

********ONLINE WILL CLOSE NOVEMBER 26 AT 5:00 P.M.

********The fee this year is $115.00 for all players.

********All players who are registered will be placed on a team.

********Tryout information is here: 2017-2018 League Information Sheet!!!!

********In-person registration will be on Nov. 29 from 6:15-8 p.m. at Amelia Elementary School.

*********Our leagues this year will be BOYS 6U (5-6 yrs), 8U (7-8 yrs), 10U (9-10 yrs) and 12U (11-12 yrs) and GIRLS 6U (5-6 yrs), 8U (7-8 yrs), 10U (9-10 yrs).

*********Practices will begin January 2.

*********Games will begin January 20 and go through March 3.

*********The website is currently being updated with 2017-18 information because we are just getting the information finalized. It will be available as it is ready. Until we had online registration going and had a date for in-person, and until we knew when tryouts would be we could not update that information. The links will work as they are updated and I will have links on the Facebook group page as I get them online.

Please be patient as this all takes time and we all work full-time and have families so we are doing this as quickly as we can. I promise I am getting the information to you as I have it.

********The online registration form is easy to maneuver. If you registered players last year you have an account and you just need to log-in with your email and the password you used. Most of the information you entered will be saved there if you use your log-in.

2017 Information Coming Soon

Though it should not need to be said, there is not any 2017 information to share here until we get going. Yes, there is info from past seasons, but that’s because it’s a blog and that info stays here.

This page is mostly used for season information such as team schedules and game results. More information will be shared on Facebook, so if you haven’t already joined the page, now is the time.

From Chaos to a Season

The behind the scene work that is going on to get the season up and running is very chaotic. Be assured that we are working hard to get the kids on the court and playing the game they love.

I know that the information that you have been getting is confusing and that we keep pushing things further out, but we do not want to take one step without knowing what the next step will be.

As of today, Sunday, November 5th, the online registration site is scheduled to be live on Tuesday, Nov. 7th. This is giving us a day to do nothing but work on getting some things finalized and hopefully that happens by Tuesday morning.

~~~~~ IMPORTANT INFORMATION ~~~~~

Once the schools close for winter break BLD will not answer any emails or phone calls. The schools will be closed so no practices can take place until they open again. Please do not text coaches or any BLD board member during the break. 

We prefer that no practices take place over the break, but if coaches decide to have practice, please know that BLD will not be responsible for any accident that might happen. So, practice at your own risk.

~~~~~ GYM RULES ~~~~~

We are GUESTS of BISD and as such we have rules that need to be adhered to. 

NO ONE is to be on the stages in the gyms…ESPECIALLY at Regina Howell and Caldwood. The schools have made this request so we MUST keep kids off the stages. 
Siblings need to stay off the gym floor during practices. ONLY PLAYERS AND COACHES need to be on the floor and ONLY PLAYERS AND COACHES need to be bouncing balls. Any extra kids on the floors create chaos for the coaches which makes it hard to practice. If at all possible, please do not bring siblings to practice. Repeated requests by coaches or player agents to parents to keep siblings off the floor will result in practices being closed…meaning parents and siblings will not be allowed in the gyms during practices. 
If there is any school equipment (balls, floor mats, etc.) in the gyms, please do not allow anyone to play with or on this equipment. 
Do not drag chairs across the gym floors as this scratches the floors. 
Once your practice is over, please leave the gym as soon as possible so that the next teams can begin their practice. If coaches want to have a short meeting, this needs to be done off the playing area of the floor or outside. We have already had complaints of it being hard to practice because of parents hanging out on the court. 
Do not bring food or drinks in the gyms. 
Not adhering to any of these gym rules could get us banned from using BISD gyms so we depend on your cooperation. 

Team Notifications

If you have not heard from a coach concerning which team and when practices will be, please email jay.anderson409@gmail.com. Kim Adams does not have the team information and cannot answer any questions. All team notifications should have been made as of Sunday, December 11.
