Registration fee refunds for DYBSA will be processed directly thru SportsEngine. They will credit the original credit card used during the registration process. This should be completed within the next week or two.
Please see attached letter from MYAS and the Youth Sports Coalition. Many of you have seen this already as we have had some questions arise from it. We thought it was important to blast this out to the entire association so everyone has the same information. What does this mean?
First of all, as you can see, MYAS has formally cancelled the season as it was planned. DYBSA had insight that this was going to be the case which is part of the reason we cancelled when we did. With the Crow River Softball League and the Crow River Junior Baseball league having already cancelled, adding MYAS to the list simply meant we would have no place to play 10 year and older baseball.
What has been created for the balance of this year is a joint effort between MYAS and Metro Baseball League, creating what they are calling the Baseball Alliance of Minnesota. The attached letter shows what offerings they are hoping to have available starting July 6th - IF the governor gives a green light to begin games, which they hope to have in the next 7-10 days. However, we have heard this same type of guidance on approvals in the past, only for it to be extended. So, at this point, the July 6th start date is hopeful, but theoretical.
We don’t know exactly what these opportunities actually mean yet, and are waiting for more information. Everyone could read into them differently. Please give DYBSA time to understand what this all means and determine the best path forward. Calls have already come in from some who have seen this announcement asking what we are going to do, can I put a team together, will the association sponsor it, etc. These questions are not a simple yes\no at this point in time.
Please understand that DYBSA is trying to have some sort or baseball\softball opportunities for the community this summer…IF IT MAKES SENSE. Once we have further information from the newly created Baseball Alliance of MN we will share it out.
