Can I request that my player be placed on a team with a specific Coach?

The league, when organizing teams, cannot fulfill requests to have children placed with specific coaches. However, this comment is passed along to managers when selecting teams.

Can I request that my child not play or practice on certain nights due to other extracurricular, family or religious commitments?

The league, when organizing teams, cannot promise to fulfill requests regarding play or practice nights. However, your request will be passed on to the coaches during the selection process and if they can accommodate this request they may choose to do so.

Is my child automatically placed back on the same team they played on last spring?

No, teams are re-selected and drafted each year.

Is my child on the same team for both the spring and fall seasons?

No, new fall teams are selected every season and they do not have any affiliation to the teams formed in the spring or with the previous fall's team.

Can I request that my child play on a team with their best friend?

We cannot fulfill requests to have children paired up on teams with their friends.

Can I request that my child be put on a team with a friend so that we can carpool to games and practices?

The league, when organizing teams, cannot fulfill requests to have children paired up on teams because of carpooling requests.

Can I request that my player NOT be placed on a team with a specific other player?

This is a very unfortunate situation but the league, when organizing teams, cannot fulfill requests to not have certain children placed on teams with other specific players. However, this comment is passed along to managers when selecting teams and a conscious effort is undertaken to avoid placing players with historical issues (between them) on the same team.

Can I choose to have (or not have) my child placed on the same team as his sibling?

The league will honor this request either way. This request shall be made by contacting the league office.

Can I request that my player NOT be placed on a team with a specific Coach?

The league will honor all valid requests to not place players on teams with a coaching conflict. However to be a valid request, an explanation as to why that player can not be placed with that specific coach must be given to the Softball Board President in writing. Merely stating a desire in the comment section of the registration form is NOT acceptable. All explanations are discreetly reviewed. If valid, a simple note stating that a specific team (not a coach) is not a placement option for that player will be presented during the team selection process.

My child has tremendous natural abilities and superior abilities (for her age) when it comes to playing baseball or softball. Is she allowed to move up into an older league to play with players who have like abilities?

The player will be allowed to come out to evaluations prior to the season for the next age group. If all the coaches agree, then the player may be moved up to the next age group.

My child misses the cut-off date by 1 day; can they play in the same league as their friends?

In rare cases, players may be place in an upper division when this scenario applies. However, all play up requests must be cleared by the DSYSA Baseball and Softball Board.
