League Registration — Frequently Asked Questions for Fall/Winter and Spring League Registration

Please contact our league registrar if you have any questions that are not answered on this page - registrar/at/tcyba.org. The following are some answers to frequently asked questions that may assist you and make the registration a smooth process:

  • Can my child play on the same team as a friend?

    We will do our best to provide the opportunity for friends to play together however it is subject to our first come, first served policy. All registrations must be completed online.

  • FALL - What is TCYBA's refund policy?

    A full refund of the reg­u­lar reg­is­tra­tion fee will only be pro­vided where a player chooses to with­draw due to a change in prac­tice time/location ini­ti­ated by the league. Such refunds will not be assessed an admin­is­tra­tion fee.

    Fall/ Winter 2018-19 season:

    Registration to August 31st: Regular League fee less $25 administration fee

    September 1st to 21st: 50% reimbursement of regular league fee

    September 22nd: NO REFUND

    A full refund of the regular registration fee will only be provided where a player chooses to withdraw due to a change in practice time/location initiated by the league. Such refunds will not be assessed an administration fee.

    Parents/players may apply for a full refund of registration fees, citing extraordinary circumstances. Such requests must be made in writing to the Board of Directors through the Executive Director The Board will consider such requests on an individual basis.

    PLEASE NOTE - GRADE 9/10 BOYS & GRADE 11/12 BOYS TEAMS WILL PLAY GAMES ON SATURDAYS. REFUNDS WILL NOT BE PROVIDED FOR SCHEDULE CONFLICTS WITH TCYBA GAMES.

  • For most grades there are two lev­els – What level do I sign my child up for?

    New players to the TCYBA must register in the division in which their current grade, will be the highest grade listed– for example a new Grade 5 player to the TCYBA must register at the Grade 4/5 level. Grade 4’s registering at the Grade 4/5 level must have already played at least one season in the TCYBA and be physically ready to play with others that are their age and older. Exception: Players that are entering grade 2 may participate in the grade 2/3 division. 


    Parents of returning players may choose which division is most suited to their child’s development (both physically and emotionally). Coach’s children can be in either grade (even if they are new players to the TCYBA). There may be some discretion involved if a child has played in other organizations, etc. A request for an exception must be made in writing to the League Coordinator.

  • How do I know which team to sign up for?

    When you go online, you will be able to choose from a selection of teams that currently have space available. The location of the practice (school name), day of the week, and time will be listed on the Stack Sport Registration Site. Please refer to our FAQ on "How do I register?" for more information.

  • I do not live in the Tri-City area. Can I still reg­is­ter my child on a TCYBA team?

    Due to the anticipated high enrollment and expansion of programming to areas outside of traditional TCYBA boundaries this year, priority registration will be provided to children who are taking part in programs within the areas that their families reside in. Returning players, their siblings and coach’s children are still allowed to join teams even if they reside outside of a specific area.  

    This regulation does not apply to teams that practice outside of the TCYBA or to teams that practice in the Tri-City area but have a coach who resides in a neighboring community.

  • I may be inter­ested in assist­ing with the team, but am not com­fort­able tak­ing on a role as coach. Where else can I help?

    There are other roles for volunteers. You could offer to act as “team parent” for phoning/emailing and other duties or as a gym supervisor on game nights.  

  • I may be inter­ested in coach­ing this year. What train­ing do you pro­vide for coaches?

    Our volunteer coaches are all provided with Steve Nash League specific basketball coaching instruction provided by highly qualified instructors. Additional training will also be available during the season – these opportunities are provided at no cost to the coaches. Coaches do not require any previous experience.  


    Please contact the Coaching Coordinator at coach.coordinator@tcyba.org if you are interested in getting involved as a volunteer coach. The Coaching Coordinator will work with you to select a practice time/location that will fit into your schedule. Please contact the Coaching Coordinator ASAP to make arrangements for coaching a team.
