Information regarding the 2021 Season was sent to the MCBR Town Directors on Oct 18. Town Directors will disseminate and review with their Head Coaches. We ask that all questions and correspondence to MCBR come through your MCBR Town Director to MCBR...thank you.
Coach/Team registration (Head Coaches and Assistants) is now open using the link down further on this page, below the COVID Section. (Head Coaches must have their USSSA team insurance policy number in order to register-required entry) Assistant coaches do not need to wait for head coach to register first.
Player Registration is now open using the link down further on this page, below the COVID Section. Any player that will play in a MCBR game has to be registered with MCBR here/rostered to the team. Player Parents do not need to wait for their coaches to register first.
(FYI-the MCBR Participation waiver is now integrated electronically into the registration interviews for coaches and players.)
The default pages for our Regular Season Leagues have been turned over to the 2021 season and Team Pages have been created. Teams will not be placed into Divisions until Feb. The league pages also have the option to select and view the last two seasons.
After a long wait and weeks of administrative preparation, we are glad to see the MCBR teams/players get back on the field this week. Remaining on the fields is now up to the coaches and players to adhere to our RTP Safety Plan-Full document of criteria and guidelines linked in the right side panel. Key Items:
Field owners also reserve the right to add further restrictions to our Safety Plan and each coach must know their field owner's rules. Also, Fields Owners and the MCBR Board reserve the right to restrict teams from further rentals/games should they determine teams are not following the MCBR Safety Plan or their specific field rules. Everyone needs to be vigilant and always maintain proper 6ft spacing to avoid face covering on the sidelines (other than player family group stations). Know the guidelines. Every coach has them and was instructed to review with all team parents; and they are posted on the right side panel. Please work together for a safe and compliant full season.
ROSTERING NOTE: no additional players/coaches can be rostered from this point on without a signed waiver submitted to (email@example.com) from the coach requesting to add the player. A player, or coach, is not covered by insurance until rostered; its a two step process; Register/waiver then we roster them to the team when approved.

Since all MCBR teams 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 are located in the NYS Finger Lakes Region. Teams should contact USSSA NYS Rep John Demagistris for information about USSSA insurance coverage for team events inside and outside of NYS. (firstname.lastname@example.org)
NOTE: Teams/players/families/Coaches that travel outside NYS are expected to follow the NYS quarantine and testing requirements 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.
