Season Information

FALL 2014

 The season will have its first game Saturday September 6th and we will play every weekend until November 1st. The Championships for the top 4 teams in each flight will be the held the following weekend November 8th. The U16s and above will end October 18th with the top two teams being determined by the number of points they have received.

 Team reservations and payment need to be in by Friday August 15thth. There will be no teams entered after that date. All Clubs and Independent teams need to fill out the “Team Reservation Form” and submit that along with your payments. Please also include any scheduling requests at that time. Team fees may be paid using Pay Pal. The Team reservation form will be used to make the schedule and roster the coaches and managers to the appropriate teams. You can email that to me at BI-HYSA@hawaii.rr.com or mail it along with your team fees to 64-5322 Puukapu St. Kamuela, HI 96743

The leagues assistant registrars and league registrar will handle Player Registrations. All player registrations forms, photos and team rosters for those players wanting to play on September 6th need to be in along with payments to the league registrars by August 26th.  The league will only guarantee that players will be properly registered 10 days after the league registrars receive payment and all the proper paper work. (Member registration, Usable Photo, Copy of Birth Certificate if not in system). Multi Rosters are guaranteed after 3 days of receiving the Player Status form.

For the quickest response teams should take digital photos of the players and email those photos to the registrars. If you send a hard copy it needs to be a recognizable 1 ¼” by 1 ¼”.  This also is the best way to send copies of the player Membership forms and copies of birth Certificates. Players may register throughout the year. All payments may be made thru PayPal, which is located on the Coaches/Administrators page. You may use your credit card or your Club PayPal account.

On a case-by-case basis with parental approval and BI-HYSA Board approval, a player may play with a greater than 3 year age difference. For those players please submit a Play up Waiver found on the BI-HYSA website and have your coach state your case to the BI-HYSA board. The U19 age group is considered one age group for U15-U19s.

 Multi Rostering will be limited to 2 players for teams with less than 8 players a side, 3 players for teams with 8 to 10 players aside.

 

 Rosters will be frozen three weeks prior to the fall playoffs (October 19th).

 If a team forfeits a game but would still like to engage in a scrimmage, substitute players must have player card present and play in the correct age division.

 The League will charge a $50 withdrawal fee for a team that withdraws between the date of the team reservation and prior to the first game of season. Half of the team fee will be returned if the team withdraws after the start of the season up to mid season determined by the team’s schedule. BI-HYSA will retain full fee if a team withdraws in second half of the season.
