Registrations received after the registration deadline will be put on a waiting list and added to a team only if there is enough room on the roster. To avoid the waiting list, please register before the Feb 9 deadline.
If you register and your player decides not to play, we will refund your registration fee upon request. If you register and we are unable to form a team, we will automatically refund your registration fee after the registration deadline expires.
Can I participate in another activity while also playing SJB Softball?
Several SJB players also play for Burtonsville Athletic Association (BAA) softball in a joint coordination between the two programs. Some players also play other sports including spring basketball. We are able to support some scenarios on a case by case basis, though we do have an expectation that you attend a majority of the practices and games. Please contact Softball Commissioner Michael Diokno at firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss your situation.
Want to Coach?
SJB is always looking for coaches. Contact Michael Diokno email@example.com.
I registered and SJB was unable to form a team.
Please understand that if your player is interested, register NOW so that we can understand the level of interest and demand. By registering early, you are letting us know that there is interest and if we have say, seven players for a team it gives us time to go recruit and get players 8, 9, and 10.
In the event SJB is unable to form a team, your registration fee will be refunded and we will work to find another team for your player to play within the CYO or at a recreational league such as BAA.
