What grade levels are available?
BYBA can place players in leagues that span from 4th to 8th grade for both boys and girls. We also allow 3rd graders to tryout for our 4th grade teams
What is the cost of our program?
$375 per player. The fee includes all practices, uniform, games, a tournament and metro playoffs tournament. This fee is paid after you are selected to play on a team and accept placement.
When are the games played?
Games are on Sundays starting the first week of December through early March. No games during Christmas vacation but there will be games during February vacation. There is a 12 game regular season schedule and playoffs for all teams in early March
Where are the games played?
We have an agreement with Mass Premier Courts for each team to have 2-3 home games in Barrington and 2-3 home games at Mass Premier Courts in Foxboro. Six games will be road games at neighboring towns in the 95 area of Massachusetts
When and where are practices?
Teams will practice twice a week. Either two evenings a week or an evening and a Saturday afternoon practice. All practices will be in Barrington at St. Andrew's School or Barrington Middle School
Do all teams play in the same division of Metrowest?
No. Metrowest has four or five different division levels in each grade and BYBA has the ability to place teams in the division we feel is the best fit for our teams. Some BYBA teams will play in higher divisions while some will play in lower divisions. We can place teams in multiple divisions in the same grade level as well
Do you place all players on teams?
No, there will be players not selected for a team. BYBA will try to place as many players on appropriate level teams depending skill level, enrollment, available gym time and availability of coaches. There will be A and B teams in divisions where enrollment is sufficient and there is availability of gym time and coaches
What is the team selection process like?
Players will be evaluated at two separate tryout sessions by coaches in their respective grade levels and by board members. The coaching staff and board selects each respective team collaboratively based on player evaluations at tryouts.
