Parents and Players,
Due to the amount of rain we have received over the past week and the unplayable field conditions, CBA has decided to cancel the coaches look for the spring season.
Coaches will be drafting teams on Sunday, 2/25 without the coaches look. This year the coaches will draft the all players through a ranking system based on previous playing experience. If a player is new to CBA, they will be place in the “blind draft” where a coach can select them at random. All registered players will be placed on a team.
You should hear from your respective coach regarding team assignment by the first of March.
