-Behavior Toward Umpires - Each Head Coach is responsible for controlling the behavior of not just themselves, but that of all players AND fans on their side of the field. Be part of the solution to reverse the trend with the uptick in umpire abuse. If umpires walk off the field due to abuse, leaving the game incomplete, the outcome of the game will be impacted. Its up to everyone to make the game environment an enjoyable, meaningful, and a positively memorable experience for the kids.
-Head Coach: Engage with all players on your team every game, be personable with all of them, and make the weaker players on your team feel important and noticed and let them know you are interested in improving their game, like any player on the team....especially the mental game. keep them lifted up...be encouraging....help them gain confidence....it all will make a bigger difference to them in totality after a season and in other parts of their life. Keep the tone and atmosphere on your side of the field positive. Help yourself and everyone on your side learn good habits on how to keep composure and react appropriately to calls and situations that don't go your/their way. There will be frustrating calls every game, to one side or the other, umpires are amateurs also. Expect it. Plan ahead on how you/team is going to react to it. Coaches and players make mistakes and so do umpires. But keep in mind some bang bang plays are just simply too close to be sure your reaction is correct without a replay...which is not going to happen in MCBR.....

2024 Season Registration for Coaches and Players. (it's best to use a non-business email address so emails from MCBR website mail system are not scrubbed by corporate domains or end up in Spam folders)(NOTE: Registrants won't show up on a team page roster until we roster their registration-we try do that at least once a day, please be patient and check back later and do not register more than once. If a coach notices a rostering issue (coach as player, players registered twice, player or coach needs to be removed from roster/deleted, etc) the Head Coach should contact Tim Chase, MCBR Pres/Registrar(firstname.lastname@example.org) and NOT the SE Help Desk. MCBR controls the admin for our league registrations. The SE Help Desk should only be contacted for your SE account issues-Not MCBR registrations and rosters.

Based on the Gov's announced on June 15, 2021 removing all NYS mandated masking/distancing and sanitation protocols for Sports and Recreation, MCBR has removed all our remaining overarching sanitation protocols. However, each Head Coach needs to know and have his/her team and spectators follow any field owner established protocols that remain in place. From this point forward Home team is to furnish all game balls; normal MCBR policy.
