ALERT!!  As of today, 12/2/16 at 4:30pm, we have 3 teams that have indicated they would like to show up and scrimmage this coming Sunday, December 4 at Cabrillo Middle School from 10am-12noon.  Those teams are one in the G2 division, one in the B4 division and one in the B1 division.  Feel free to come.  This is not mandatory or a formal, strictly organized activity.  We are just looking for teams to come out and play to give our officials a look at what they will actually see starting January 7th.

ALERT!!  Coaches . . . we are still in the process of putting the schedules together . . . we were bumped out of some dates and had to redo them . . . hopefully we can get them up sometime next week . . . ALL teams will be playing on Saturday, January 7th

Some coaches have already indicated that they cannot make either of the two dates.  Those coaches will be calling our office to come in and have individual meetings the week of November 21st, and later, to pick up their rosters.

If you do not receive a call from a coach by November 28, give the VYBA Hotline (658-4705) a call and leave a message so we can help track down your child's coach.

We still have a few teams that do not have a coach yet (as of 12/2) and we are contacting the parents on those teams to see if one, or more, will pick up the ball and get the teams started.
