For all games (Comp, Rec, and Softball) played in Brighton, the BYBA field director will make a decision no later than 330pm to cancel games. Anything later than that we will leave to the umpires. As you can imagine, there are circumstances that will necessitate some flexibility in the policy. That being said 3:30pm is our goal.
For games played outside of BYBA, we do not have control over how those fields are managed. Each area and or game will be individually addressed and the teams will be notified appropriately.
The light schedule is reviewed daily, if there is ever a field lighting issue, please contact Kelly Wadsworth or Gordon Lancaster. Lights are scheduled to come on during games only - 30 minutes before sunset. Additionally, the concession stand staff will have a phone number to call for lights in the event Kelly or Gordon cannont be reached. Please note the lights take 10-15 minutes to warm up to full capacity.

Recreational League Changes
The board has taken feedback from parents on levels of play and how kids are slotted to different groups. Please take a look at the attached matrix showing the new offerings and levels of play. We feel these changes will not only expand our current offerings, they will also align BYBA with adjacent area offerings. The changes will take effect when registration opens on January 13th. The website will be updated prior to registration opening.
