Thank you Lowe's! 09/27/2014 The WBYAA would like to extend a sincere thank you to Lowe's...
Volunteers from Lowe's worked on several projects at the ball fields on Sept 20th and 21st.
The WBYAA would like to extend a sincere thank you to Lowe's and their dedicated volunteers that joined several WBYAA parents to work on several projects last weekend.
The exterior of the dugouts were scraped and painted. New walls for the South Field scorer's booth were installed and painted. The bathroom at the clubhouse was gutted and new tile walls and bathroom fixtures were installed. New doors were installed for the clubhouse and bathroom. Finally, a good cleaning of the equipment room was provided.
WBYAA Members, Coaches Friends and West Bridgewater Residents,
The WBYAA is having its annual election of Officers and Directors on October 29, 2014 at 8:00 PM. Location Samoset Rod & Gun Club.
Anyone interested in running for one of the positions listed below should contact the Nomination committee via email:
by October 17th to be included on the ballot. Write-ins will be allowed on the night of the election as long as the nominee is present. Submissions received prior to September 24 will be announced at the September Board Meeting.
We are in need of new volunteers as some of our volunteers' children 'graduate' out of the program. The time commitment is typically a 2 hour meeting per month for at-large board directors and 3 hours of field duty 4 times during the baseball/softball season. Commissioners and committee members' time commitment varies per season and sport. Please consider running for one of the positions to help support your town's (and your child's) youth athletic program!

Individuals wishing to vote in the annual election must verify their eligibility under the bylaws one week prior to the election (October 22) with the Nomination Committee.

A Registrar is appointed by the President. This is a critical position to work on the website to open up and communicate the registrations for all of the sports. Please reply if interested in this role.

Just a reminder - a little over a week left to register for dome and spring soccer. Registration ends Oct 4th.h
We just wanted to let everyone know that the registration is now open for the following:
- 1st session dome soccer
- 3rd session dome and spring soccer
Like last year, it will be required to play third session dome if you wish to play spring. It is our intention to have the spring teams play 3rd session dome together. In addition, we will make every effort to put as many of these kids together for 1st and 2nd sessions as well.
We will be adding a third session "recreational" dome signup later in the year as well to cover those that enjoy playing dome, but prefer not to play spring soccer.
We do recognize the difficulty on the payment side of handling 1st and 3rd sessions of dome and spring at the same time. However, it is required to enter teams for the first session of dome and also to submit rosters on time for spring. To help in this area, we have allowed for a payment option to defer 2nd session dome fees until later this year.
As for uniforms, we have decided to supply all players with new uniforms for dome and spring soccer this year. Thus, you will have two options when signing up.
Option 1: dome only / t-shirt for $10
Option 2: spring uniform for $40 includes shirt, shorts and socks
Spring players will be required to get new uniforms and will wear their spring shirts for dome as well. We will be tracking numbers carefully this year with the hope that spring players will be able to reuse their uniforms next year.
"Dome only" players will wear the new t-shirt.
If interested, please do your best to register your child as soon as possible so we can make a decision on the number of players / teams to enter for dome and spring.
