It is that time of the year and we are beginning to launch the site updates for OakdaleBSA.com which also means that we have started early registrations for the 2020 Spring season. All completed registrations through December 31st will receive a $15 early registry discount per player. Just a heads up, due to increases in costs for equipment, facilities, balls, gear, and the added costs for the expanding of our compliance with the safe sports act and a required enhanced background check of all voluenteers the cost per player is going up $15 per player for the 2020 season. So getting your registration in early will get your players registration in for the 2019 rate.
The registration sysstem is accessable by visiting Oakdalebsa.com and clicking on the arge "Registration" banner on the home page. You may also register in person on January 7th ad 14th between 6:30 - 7:30 at the Binachi Center in Oakdale. However, non-discounted registration regular rates will apply. Online registrations will be available until January 20th at the regular rate and then starting January 21st through the Thurday January 22rd we will have late registrations available with a $35 late fee applied. After the 22nd the online system will disabled to prepare for tryouts.
There is so many new things in the works for 2020 and beyond for OBSA and ball players in Oakdale that this is going to be a great season. Once again we will be using the Sports Signup Play online system for registration as well as for all scheduling and league/team communications.

We still have a few open positions for the 2020 season on the board as well, if you are interested in coaching a team for the 2020 season be sure to sign up online or in person at the in-person registration events. If you register with interest to be a oach online please make sure to register from your adult account on Sports Signup Play (Formerly SI Play) that is attached to your child and that your information is complete including birthdate and contact information. This is important in us being able to get ahold of you if you are selected for a coaching position as between the coach selection process and tryouts is typically 3-4 days. If you are a spouse that is signing up your significant other, please make sure their name is on your account as a parent of the player so that the registration information may be linked to the approperiate player and division.
Please remember we are a non-profit organization that requires hundereds of voluenteers to keep the gears turning for what on some years is over 1000 kids from your local community
