How do I find out when practices or games are scheduled?
A: The practice schedules will be
communicated by the coach. Game schedules, when finalized, will be posted on
this Web site, on the appropriate League and Team page.
Q: What are coach evaluations, and how are they used?
A: Coach evaluations are only completed
on travel coaches. They are one of the inputs used in the coach interview
process for the next year. Recreation parents have an opportunity to
provide feedback through the feedback form. Go to "Recreation Leagues" to
access the Feedback form.
Why hasn't anyone contacted me with team information?
A: Even though you may have sent in your
registration long ago, TMYSB must wait until almost all registrations are in
before assigning players to teams. This is because we endeavor to apportion
skill levels equally among the teams so that athletes have a positive
recreational experience. Generally, all players in grades 3 and up will be
assigned to teams by mid-March, and all players contacted by the next week. Tee
Ball, Instructional and Pee Wee players will receive calls by early April, as
practices and seasons for those leagues start later in the season.
What is the Minors Assessment, and what if we miss it?
A: Players who will play in the Minors
division (3rd & 4th graders), the first year in which the players
themselves pitch in a competitive game, will have their basic skills evaluated
by the coaches at the start of the season. This assessment is not a tryout, as
everyone is placed on a team. The assessment assists coaches in creating
balanced, competitive recreational teams. If your child is unable to
attend any of the sessions, he cannot be drafted by the coaches, but he will be
assigned to a team per procedures established by TMYSB..
What is a Player Agent?
A: The Player Agent is a member of the
TMYSB organization whose responsibility it is to protect the interests of the
children, especially as they relate to any dispute or problem. Additionally,
the Player Agent assists coaches and parents in resolving disputes. There are
three Player Agents, one each for the Spring, Fall and Winter sports seasons.
Q: What if my child wants to play a sport, but I can't pay the fee
A: Access to Mahwah recreation's programs
is open to all children, regardless of their ability to play or their ability
to pay. Notify the commissioner that you need a complimentary
