What to Expect
When players first arrive, they must submit a completed BYSL registration form at the sign-in table. Players will be required to return the completed Team/Coach Preference form to the sign-in table. The Team/Coach Preference form lists the teams (and respective coaches) that are available for that age group. The player identifies which team he/she wants to play for in order of preference. (Be sure to pick more than one coach in case you don’t get your first choice.). If desired, players will be allowed to change their picks after the session.All clubs are represented at tryouts, and players follow instructions as to which field to go to during the process, regardless of their preference. All players tryout for all teams in their age group. It is important that all coaches see all players and vice versa. Coaches use the tryouts to develop their list of Player Preferences. At the end of tryouts, the Team/Coach Preference forms from the players and the Player Preferences from the coaches are evaluated to match teams and players. A committee meets the following week and the new season rosters are compiled and returned to the coaches. Once these rosters are returned to the individual coaches, then they may contact the players listed on their new team roster. Contact from the coaches can be expected within 10 days after tryouts. Once a player has gone through the tryout process and has indicated their team preferences on the team/coach preference sheets, those players are considered “Committed” and contact between representatives (Parents, Players, Coaches, Managers, etc.) from another team is considered Illegal Recruiting and WILL NOT be tolerated. (Players remain committed to their existing teams until July 31, 2014, so any field activities with a new team must be done with permission of the current team).
  1. Bring a ball (with your child’s name on it), shin guards, water, and a signed registration form to tryouts. The form is also included in the September 2013 issue of The Far Post newsletter.
Play-up Approval is Required
Is your son or daughter in the right age group?
NOTE: If your child is playing up to the next older age group, it must be noted on the registration form and a request from the coach to the BYSL Director of Coaching (or designee) MUST be made in advance of his/her evaluation and recommendation. (Play-ups are allowed on a limited basis only.)
IYSA District II – Snake River League
The IYSA District II Snake River League (SRL) season runs from March through May. Games are played up and down the valley from Teton to Marsh Valley. Games are scheduled on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday evenings, and all day Saturday. Individual teams generally play one game during the week and one (maybe two) game(s) on Saturday. Some additional games may be scheduled in Twin Falls or Jackson Hole (on a Saturday) at the coach’s request (and team availability in those areas).During the Spring season there are several tournaments throughout the local area, in Boise, and in surrounding states. Competitive teams may travel to tournaments in Utah, Nevada, Colorado, or Montana. Which tournaments each team (or club) travels too are up to the clubs or the individual teams themselves.
