Welcome to Bismarck Youth Baseball

AAA Division Tournament Bracket:(Updated)

NOTE - Highlighted games reflect the following changes to original schedule: 5th and 7th place games will be at 5:30 pm on 7/14. 1st and 3rd place games will be at 7:30 pm on 7/14. 


General Reminders About Weather Issues

Here are a few reminders about weather issues during the season:

  • Any cancellation of BYB games due to weather that are made before 5 pm will always be posted on the home page of this league web site. Notices will also be posted on the BYB Facebook page, and the new bismarckyouthbaseball.siplay.com web site. The notices will specifically say Bismarck Youth Baseball. We will also attempt to use the text alert function in the siplay system - but, do not count on that the first time, as there could be glitches with it.
  • Bismarck Parks & Rec may also cancel their games due to weather, and may post on their respective web site and social media sites. If they do - they will state cancellations are for Parks & Rec Youth Baseball. If they are kind enough to share our cancellation notices on their page, they will be sure to state BYB.
  • As we have night games, we typically wait as late in the day as possible to cancel, as things can clear up/dry up quickly. P&R has day games - so their cancellations come earlier in the day.

If there is no notice on the home page of this BYB web site, then games will be played -

or they will be called off at the fields.

  • If weather moves in while games are being played, it is up to coaches whether or not they call off the current games and/or the late games. Basically, it's a game time decision, made by coaches. Different teams and/or different divisions could make different decisions.
  • If early games are called off while being played, it doesn't automatically mean that late games are cancelled. If we call off both sets of games, due to field conditions - the notice will state that.
  • The only "all or nothing" rule pertains to lightening: a pause in action due to lightening mandates all games stop for 20 minutes, to allow for a decision to be made.

Game Schedules For All Divisions Have Been Published

Game Schedules for all divisions have been published on the new web site.

Gone are the days of the static PDF file!! Schedules are linked directly to your player's team/wall. And, there is a master schedule that you can look at in either grid or list view. On that calendar, you can filter to see one division or all - and there is an iCal link as well.

Families with players in multiple divisions - this should help you immensely, as you can select whatever divisions you want, and have a combined calendar.

If your team(s) have private events, they are only visible when you are logged into that TEAM website. Click on a team name on the main calendar to go to their website, or follow the divisions and teams link in the main drop down menu. Here is the link to the master calendar:

http://bismarckyouthbaseball.siplay.com/site/ClientSite/schedule

Coaches and Coordinators - a separate email is also forthcoming with your division rules, and information about umpires (AA, AAA, Majors) and the upcoming umpire training.

NOTE - There are different "league game" end dates for each division, in order to accommodate all of the expanded divisions. League-ending tournament schedules (for AA, AAA, and Majors) will also be published later this week, with placeholders in for the various games.


REMINDER - ALL 2016 TEAM/ROSTER INFO IS ON THE REGISTRATION WEB SITE

Reminder - in January, we launched our new online registration system that is directly connected to Cal Ripken national charter office. Everyone registered in the new system. That is the web site that all of the current year player/team/roster info is at.

  • Go to the link below and log-in (upper right corner of the page)
  • At the top of your profile page, you will see links to your player(s) team wall

DO NOT USE THE NGIN LOG-IN ABOVE - AS NO CURRENT SEASON INFO IS IN THERE.


2016 Uniform/Picture Schedule & Order Form

The uniform/picture schedule and instructions are below - as well as the order form. All parents - please read through the instructions, and have your player report to Centennial Elementary a few minutes before your listed "Call Time".

SCHEDULING NOTE - We know that there are other activities going on both of these days. DO NOT CONTACT THE LEAGUE and ask for your team's time to be changed. If your player has to miss their time slot, their uniform will be collected by the coordinator or designated representative from their team - and they can get it later. You can then contact the photographer directly if you are interested in having an individual photo taken separately.

PICTURE ORDER FORM NOTES - Payment (checks made out to GameDay Photography) must accompany the order form. Orders do not have to be made the day of pictures - they can be mailed in separately to the photographer any time during the season. But, if they are mailed in within two weeks of picture day, they will be included in the first order distribution. TRADING CARDS - You do not need to list the jersey number in that section - the photographer has a system in place to know which jersey number each player has, and will add that into the order after the fact.


MISSING "BIRTH CERTIFICATE" SYSTEM MESSAGE

If you see a message in the new SIPLAY system saying that you need to upload a birth certificate to complete registration - DISREGARD IT - if your player is returning from last year, we have birth certificates from prior years. And, if they are a new player and you mailed it in - we will contact you directly if we have not received it.

Registration for 2016 is Now Closed - Update on What Happens Next

Registration for the 2016 season is now closed for all divisions, and we are working through the process of player, head coach and coordinator placements. Since we have some changes due to our new system, here are some details as to what happens next:

  • WAITLISTS - If you have been placed on a waitlist through the online system, you will be contacted by April 15th to let you know if your player has been placed. 
  • DIVISION PLACEMENT REMINDER - We no longer send out Division Placement postcards. If you have received your email receipt from online registration - that is your acknowledgement that your player is registered for their age-appropriate division. If you registered by postal mail, you should have received an email or phone call from the League once your player's paper form was entered into the online system.
  • TEAM PLACEMENT NOTIFICATION - Once all player, head coach, and coordinator placements are finalized, teams will be activated within the new online SIPLAY system - and automated emails/text alerts will be sent out to each family. 11/12YO Players - this includes you, and that is how you will know which division/team you are placed on.

We will activate teams by division - once all teams in a division have head coach and coordinators confirmed. This means that different divisions may have notices sent out on different days - but, all teams within a division will be announced at the same time. NOTE - If you have players in multiple divisions - DO NOT CONTACT THE LEAGUE with questions if you receive an announcement for one division, and not the other, on the same day. We will only release teams in each division, once all teams in that division are finalized. This process takes time - and we ask for your patience. If we have a division that is not released - it is because we are still trying to secure head coach and/or coordinator positions for one or more teams.

We hope to have all team notifications sent out prior to the parent meeting on April 19th. 

  • HEAD COACH/COORDINATOR VOLUNTEERS - Division Directors will be reaching out to those who indicated volunteer preference in these two roles between now and April 17th - to confirm ability to do so. NOTE - head coaches and coordinators WILL NOT need to call each family to provide team placement information - as all families will receive the automated TEAM WALL email/text alert.
  • ASSISTANT COACH/UMPIRE VOLUNTEERS - Once head coaches and coordinators are confirmed, they will be given the names of parents on their team who had indicated volunteer preference in these two roles. The head coaches and/or coordinators will then reach out to those people individually to determine who will do what.
  • COACH/COORDINATOR/PARENT/TRAVEL MEETINGS - These meetings will be held in the west gym at Horizon Middle School on Tuesday night, April 19th. Please check the calendar page for exact times of each meeting. The main parent meeting is very informative for families that are new to the league - or those who have not attended in the past. While players can attend - it is easiest if just one parent attends, with no children, as it is designed more for the parents. The main parent meeting is not required - and the info provided will also be given to team coordinators, so they can pass along to those who do not attend. The TRAVEL TEAM parent meeting is required - there must be at least one parent of each travel team player attend that meeting.
  • UNIFORMS/PICTURES - As in the past, uniform distribution/pictures will take place on a Friday evening and all day Saturday - at Centennial Elementary School. The dates for this year are April 29th and 30th. This is an intense, efficient process that enables us to get uniforms distributed and pictures taken of over 900 players, on over 80 teams, in a very short amount of time. We will post the final schedule by the week of the parent meeting. We anticipate that the schedule will be similar to last year, with Rookie Division on Friday night, AA Saturday morning, Travel teams around the lunch hour, Majors and AAA in afternoon, and T-Ball in late afternoon/early evening. NOTE - We have a process in place, whereby coordinators will receive uniforms for players who cannot attend at their assigned time. Once the final schedule is released, DO NOT contact the League and ask for your player and/or team to go through at a different time - it cannot be done. 
  • LEAGUE GAME SCHEDULES - Game schedules for the entire season will be posted later in the month - tentatively by the weekend of April 23rd. There will be a separate schedule posted for each division.

2016 Travel Team Rosters & Parent Info

The 2016 Travel Rosters are listed below. Each team roster is sorted alphabetically, by player's last name.

Parents - we now need to identify coaches and coordinators for each team. Each team will have a maximum of 3 coaches. Any player guardian that is interested in serving as a travel coach or coordinator, should email BYB no later than 6 pm CST on Sunday, April 10, 2016, and indicate what team and position you are interested in. If there are more than 3 individuals interested in coaching, the Director of the Traveling Division will schedule a meeting to make the final determination. NOTE - travel team coaches are also required to serve as a coach or assistant coach for a league team during the regular season. By the evening of April 7th, an email with this same information will be sent to the family addresses we have on file.
