Note: If a player pre-registers with a member club the player has paid the tryout fee for both the OYBA tryout and the member club tryout. The player must bring the registration receipt to the OYBA tryouts to confirm the tryout fee has been paid. Should the player not make an OYBA team, the receipt can be used at the club tryouts as proof of payment of the tryout fee.
If a player does not pre-register with a member club, the player will be provided with a waiver form and will pay a $25 (exact change please) tryout fee at the tryout. If the player does not make an OYBA team and registers with a member club afterwards, they will be responsible for paying the full registration fee which may include the club tryout fee.
