SBYSL Team Drafting Process:

SBYSL is receiving feedback regarding the season’s drafted teams. SBYSL has draft rules we share with our volunteer coaches at the initial coach meeting and during the drafting process.

Players are ranked before draft. The player agent, along with the coaches, go through the lists of all players and using a point system, rank each player. The information provided on the registration is also used (club player, years played, new to league). The coaches pick their teams. Ultimately, all our coaches want the teams to be even as possible with players of all skill levels. Teams may look great on paper, but overall, no one has an idea of how well the players will work together until the season is underway.

Our league is growing, and with growth we experience “Growing Pains”. Each season we find we need to adjust our rules to better the league. What works one year, may not work the next. SBYSL continues to be a work in progress. We are open to new ideas and more volunteers to move us forward.

Cindy will be at the Myers for most of the day on Saturday. If you have any concerns, you can address them with her and she will share the feedback with the SBYSL Board.
