Inability to pay need not prevent any child from participating in the QYBA - please contact the QYBA president or treasurer.

- A desire to have fun
When will I learn what team my child is on?
In late February, teams will be created. Once coaches have been assigned, the coaches will contact all their players and begin scheduling practices in early March.
I have a returning child - is their information already in the system?
Yes, if you had a child registered in a previous season, most (if not all) of your registration information will already be available in the QYBA website. After you click the "Register" button for the program you wish to register for, you will be prompted to enter the email address used for all communication with QYBA (if you provided multiple email addresses to QYBA, any of them will work), along with your password.
If you forgot or never had a password, type in just your email address and within a few minutes you will receive an email at that address with a temporary password. Once you login you can change the password to whatever you like.
Should I check that the information from last year is correct?
Yes, once your existing account comes up, please take a minute to verify the information for each of the parents and children shown in your account. Please also consider adding any new information that we did not have in the past (e.g. cell phone or alternate email addresses).
How do I add a new child to my account?
Once your existing account comes up, select the "Add Child" link below the current members of your account.
How come the "Register" button is grayed out next to my child’s name?
If your child is not eligible for the currently selected division, then the button next to their name will indicate "Ineligible" and be grayed out. To change the division click on the "Register Online" link on the left side of the page and then choose the division you wish to register for.
What if I have multiple children to register – do I start all over?
After you register your first child, the site takes you to the "check-out" page. However you do not have to pay at this point. At the bottom of the page is a "Click here to return to the Registration home page" link. If you have more children to register, you should choose this.
