Team Registration (2 steps)

1) Register Your Team 

  • Manager should register the team Nov. 1, 2022 - Jan. 31, 2023.  No fee to register a team.  You will input an expected roster which includes player first name, last name and email address of parent.  You will "Invite" the parent who will get an email with a link to register.  Rosters can be edited at any time so players can be added or removed as necessary.  Parent pays $165 player fee when they register ($25 late fee after Feb. 25).

2) Players Register

  • After registering the team, entering a roster and "inviting" players, parents receive an email with a link to register.  Be sure to check SPAM and junk mail for the email.  

  • Player Registration is $165/player ($25 late fee after Feb. 25) - if you are expected on a manager's roster, you will receive an emailed INVITE from the manager with a link to register.  Be sure to check SPAM and junk mail for the email.  If you are looking for a team, you can register under option "Player without a team" which will place the player on an Available Players list.  You can also go to the Discussion Board and place and ad for a Player Looking for a Team or look at ads for Teams Looking for Players.   CBSA will do it's best to find your player a team but cannot guarantee placement
