2018 Teams are posted

Thank you to all parents and players who participated in our 2018 tryouts. Tryouts can be stressful for players and parents so we hope the experience at a new facility went smoothly for you. 

Tryout manual - located under the vertical "Documents" tab on the BTBA.org home page in the "Tryout Documents" folder. http://btba.org/Documents.asp?n=39505&org=BTBA.ORG

As a reminder our grievance policy includes a 48 hour cooling off period after the teams are posted:

  • If a player or parent has a grievance after teams have been selected and posted on the BTBA website, then a 48 hour “cooling off” period applies. During this 48 hour period neither the player nor parent may contact the coaching staff or board members regarding team selection. Players are expected to be at practice for the team they were placed on. After this 48 hour period, parents may request an in-person meeting to receive feedback from the tryout but they may not ask about other players.
  • This post tryout grievance meeting will consist of the player, player’s parents, applicable Head Coach, and one or more BTBA Board members. 

We are looking forward to baseball with the league season officially beginning on April 23rd and field day scheduled for the preceding Saturday, April 21!

Go Bandits!

Thank you, BTBA
