Can I request a certain coach?
QYBA Cal Ripken utilizes a "blind draft" to evenly distribute team players based on ability and years of experience. As a general rule, no special coach/player requests are accepted. However, if there are extenuating circumstances, please contact the QYBA president.
Can I request not to have a certain coach?
If for some reason you do not wish your child to be coached by a particular individual, please contact the QYBA president.
Can I request my child "play up" in a higher division?
To ensure the safety of all players in QYBA Cal Ripken, we do not accept any requests to "play up" in a higher division than their age allows.
