Can my child play up or down from their current age league?
In most cases, children are required to play in their age-appropriate league. Sometimes
exceptions are made, particularly in regards to health or safety. If your child has 'exceptional'
skills for their age, we offer 'select' travelling teams in most age groups. Any parent wanting to
request a child to play up/down must let the current league VP know and bring the request in
person to the board during one of the bi-monthly meetings.
First, fill out and turn in and manager application form to the appropriate league VP.
Submit information online for a background check
All applications a approved by FYBA board.
Take the required state of Ohio online concussion course and pass test online for certificate to be turned in to VP.
Return equipment at the end of the season. (Failure to do so in a timely manner may result ineligibility to coach the following season)
