What if I want to cancel the registration for my child?
If your child changes their mind about playing, please send an email to the LYB  Player Agent and copy the LYB Treasurer. If payment was made prior to the change, please refer to the refund policy on whether or not you will receive a refund. ~email coming soon

How do I request a refund?
In order to request a refund, please send an email to the LYB Treasurer. You must provide the requested information in order to gain your refund. Requested information: Child’s name; your name, phone number, and mailing address; and the reason for cancellation of the registration (optional, however, we seek to improve our league and your feedback is important to us.)  Requests for refunds are processed at the end of each month. Please allow 3 weeks for your refund to be returned.

What is the refund policy at LYB?
If you cancel your child’s registration prior to the skills assessment, then you will receive a full refund.  Once uniforms have been ordered, you will receive a refund of $50 of the registration fee.  No refunds will be made after Opening Day.  All questions regarding refunds should be addressed to the LYB Treasurer.

Why do we now have to pay an online convenience charge on top of the registration fee?
The online convenience charge is to help LYB defray the costs of providing the online registration service.  In the past, LYB assumed the costs associated with PayPal payments, so for each registration paid online, the league paid PayPal a 3.5% service charge.  The service fees to allow us to capture the registration form along with the payment exceed the 3.5% service charge we were paying and would have required us to either increase the costs across the board or charge a fee to those using the online service for convenience.  If you do not wish to pay the extra $5.00, you may register in person.

What should I do if I want my child to play up a division?
If the parent wishes their child to play up a division, a written request must be submitted to the Player Agent and the player must tryout. Not all requests will be honored. The child must demonstrate an ability that is far above his peers to be granted the request. A child who qualifies by age can play up in Rookie divisions only.  Players playing up must be selected during the registration phase.  You can choose which division your child plays in for these two divisions only.

Can I request a certain coach or team for my child?
LYB allows this type of request, only in our T-Ball division. Consideration might be considered in case by case basis in extenuating circumstances.

What happens if my child is placed on a waiting list?
If your child is placed on a waiting list, you will be notified immediately by email. Once your child is moved from the waiting list, you will receive an email notification. This email will provide instructions for payment. After payment is received, your child is placed on a team. If it is apparent that your child will not be placed on a team, then you will receive an email notification to that effect as well.

What do I do to become a volunteer?
If you wish to volunteer to manage, assistant coach or be a team parent, you must register as you did your child.

How can I get my team’s roster if I am chosen to manage a team?
To see your team’s roster, please log in to your account. Find your name and then find the link titled "View Team”. This is your contact information for your team.

How can I find important dates for LYB?
Important dates will be included on your confirmation emails after you register. However, these will be included only if they are known prior to registration. To view all dates on our calendar, please visit https://lakeside.siplay.com/calendars/. Please note that these dates may change without notice.

Why do your division ages change in the fall?
This change is necessary to ensure that our players receive the instruction and skill’s progression necessary for when they move up in the spring.
