Our 12u and under league games normally begin mid April. Expect the start of the season to be pushed into May and maybe later. We just have to anticipate that the stay home mandates and no school situation will go on for quite a while. Our 13-15u, 17u and Select seasons normally start June 1 but could be impacted by decisions made for school seasons or continuation of the stay home mandates. We will update all Coaches and Town Program Directors once Gov't officials give us new information that will allow us to make decisions.
The scheduled April 5th in-person coaches meeting is postponed until further notice; and it may be cancelled due to the possibility of a quick season start after the season delay. Stay Tuned.
Coaches that are new to MCBR that still have to complete the mandatory NAYS Coaching Certification online training: please get that completed in the next couple weeks to get it out of the way during this stay at home period. It still is a requirement before you can be on the field or in the dugout when the season starts. (75 coaches pending completion still - you all have had multiple notifications and the training fee has already been paid by MCBR)
