Manager's Guide

Step 1

Register a Team

Go to the Play Ball! (Registration) page, select your team's desired division and create a new team using your login and/or create a new profile.

Step 2

Add Players to your Team

Rosters do not carry over from previous seasons, you must add or invite player to join your roster. From your team dashboard you can "Send Invites" by entering the email addresses of players you want to join your team. They will receive an email with a link to register for your team and go through the registration process.

Notes

  • If you are in need of players, please email membership@softballaustin.org to see if a pool of prospective players is available.
  • It's the manager's responsibility to make sure all players have registered, paid the player fee, and accepted the league waiver before the Registration Deadline.
  • If you have a player that can't pay online for whatever reason, you will need to help them register and pay online using a team credit card or similar. No Player Fee Checks will be accepted.

Step 3

Pay Team Fee before the Registration Deadline

Your team registration is not complete until your Team Fee has been paid. Managers are invoiced at the time of registration for your Team Fee. You can pay online by logging to your dashboard and pay by credit card.

Step 4

Complete Ratings Form

Open Division

Your team registration is not fully complete until your ratings have been emailed to Assistant Commissioner (asstcommissioner@softballaustin.org). This form must include ratings of all players listed on your team roster.

Note that NAGAAA has updated its Ratings system. Because of this, ratings can be submitted several weeks after the start of the season. To facilitate the new ratings process, Ratings Clinic will be held. A Coach or Manager from your team must be available for a Ratings Clinic. Plan on attending either or both of these clinics (Both Clinics pending weather/field conditions):

  1. Sunday 02/17/2019 from 11am-1pm at Krieg Fields
  2. 2nd week of the season at the fields on Sunday with a tentative time of 12pm.
