If you are a returning player/sibling family, and you have not received your email with registration details by Monday morning, January 9th – please send an email to the League, and we will send you the instructions.

GENERAL (NEW PLAYER) REGISTRATION: Online Registration for the 2017 season will open for New Players on Thursday, February 9th at 4 pm CST. Registrations are processed (and players placed) by date/time stamp of online registration, or date of postmark (for paper copies). As divisions get close to being full, division capacity updates will be posted at the top of the home page of both this web site (near the registration link) and on the home page of the main BYB league web site. 

  • AGE/RESIDENCE REQUIREMENTS: Only residents of Bismarck and outlying areas (North, South, and East of the river) ages 6 through 12 as of April 30th, 2017 can be registered. The player must be at least 6 and cannot be older than 12 - NO EXCEPTIONS.

    • There are two alternative options for children who are too young for BYB. The YMCA may be offering an evening t-ball league for players ages 3, 4,and 5; as well as player who turn 6 after April 30th.  Bismarck Parks & Recreation also offers a day-time t-ball league.

    • Both organizations will post information on their programs later in the spring - please contact them directly for current details.
