Registration FAQ's

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:

  • 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.

  • What if my first choice team is full or all the teams in my division are full?

    If the team you want to be on or all the teams in your age group are full, please register to the waitlist for any of the teams that will work for your schedule. You may be on multiple waitlists. 

    If a space opens up on the team you are on the waitlist for, we will notify you by email. 


    We will also notify waitlisted players if a new teams opens and is available to register to.

  • What if I can’t register online – is there another way to register?

    If you are unable to reg­is­ter online please con­tact our league reg­is­trar – registrar@tcyba.org

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.  

  • What if I am having trouble receiving communication emails from the League?

    Please makes sure that Tri City Youth Basketball Association via StackSportsMail <Support@StackSports.com> has been added to your safe sender’s list and double check that you have not Unsubscribed to Updates or E-Mail communications on your Member Account. Previous emails could be located in your Email SPAM Folder
