Small field teams start games April 22. Big Field games start June 3. Big Field coaches are currently rearranging games, coaches need to be attentive and responsive to contact from opponent coaches.
Team Entry is now closed for all Leagues for the 2022 Spring/Summer season.
Note to teams looking for a league to play in for the 2023 season: MCBR does not accept independent teams. All teams playing in MCBR must be part of/sponsored by our sanctioned Town Programs, be named, and wear the Town Program's standard nickname and branding. See our Rostering/Division Structure and Contact Us Tabs for more information on League format and Town Program Contacts. When there is enough interest, we form a Select League where Town Program teams can mix with teams from recognized Clubs organization (not independents) and play a shorter season; designed for tournament teams. Decision is made by end of November if there will be a 2023 Select League. There is not a Select League for 2022.
Teams are to follow the COVID Protocols set by the field owners. MCBR has removed all remaining overarching MCBR COVID protocols based on the NYS Gov announcement on June 15, 2021; but overall, the field owner controls their protocols for masking and distancing and teams need to follow them as applicable. See note to the right about protocols at MCC field.
Field owners are the responsible party to set the COVID safety protocols they want teams to follow. MCBR does not monitor and gather the rules of each field owner. Town Programs are responsible for knowing the field owner protocols as they are the renter of the field our MCBR games are played. Coaches need to inform players and parent spectators and opponent coaches. Please work together for a safe and compliant full season.
Since all MCBR teams now (starting Nov 2020) get team insurance directly from USSSA.com, MCBR no longer comments on current NYS guidelines regarding travel between NYS COVID regions as all our MCBR games are located in the NYS Finger Lakes Region. Teams should procure their USSSA team insurance through the their USSSA team account and contact USSSA NYS Rep John Demagistris for information about USSSA insurance coverage for the 6 or more team discount and any problems. (firstname.lastname@example.org)
Team requests for Additional Insured Certificates (for field owners) should be emailed to email@example.com and include:
Please allow 24-48 hours for processing - all concerns must be directed to USSSA or the cert email address above. MCBR provides this info as a courtesy and has no knowledge or access to USSSA information.
NOTE: Teams/players/families/Coaches that travel outside NYS are expected to follow the NYS quarantine and testing requirements (if any are in effect) upon arriving back into NYS-link below and before playing in any MCBR game. MCBR Town Directors and coaches of MCBR teams are expected to monitor and follow through on NYS travel guidelines/quarantine rules/testing requirements.

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.
June 2021 Rev - Now states that teams/umpires/spectators must follow the specific COVID protocols set by the field owner for each MCBR game. Our sanitizing rules remain the same.
NOTE: Until further notice; for games at MCC...Per direction of MCC Leadership, all players/coaches/spectators must all mask all the time and use sanitation rules in our original April 2021 COVID Safety Plan. Teams playing at MCC will get an update as we go.
