    2020-21 End of Season Update

    As we cross the half way point in our season, we wanted to take a moment and update everyone on the plan for our Grades 3-8th Playoffs and Championships as well as the playoffs and championships for our Boys 9/10th and 11/12th Grade divisions. 

    The playoffs for Grades 3-8th House League will occur from February 23-27th. At the end of the day on the February 27th, we will have determined the final 2 teams who will take part in the league championship for these age groups. 

    The Championship games for Grades 3-8th will take place on Saturday March 13th - this is a change from the previously planned March 6th date. 

    Playoffs and Championships for Boys 9/10th and 11/12th will occur on the same weekend of March 13 and 14th with playoff games both days.

    With respect to the championship games and spectators - given the current state and local restrictions, all players will continue to be limited to 1 spectator. There will NOT be the formal awards ceremony that we typically do at the end of the year. We will communicate awards and processes for this year to the coaches in the coming week ahead.


    2020 AYBL Raffle Process

    Each year, AYBL holds a raffle in which three winners are selected for a top prize of $500 and two runner-up prizes are award of $250 each.  In an effort to reduce the cost of printing the raffle tickets and the time needed to distribute and collect the raffle tickets and stubs to all players, the league will be using virtual tickets for the 2020 Raffle.  Each player registered for the league has been randomly assigned 5 ticket numbers.  The ticket numbers for all registered players will be posted on the AYBL website (on the home page).  The raffle will take place during the House League Championship weekend – at the conclusion of the Boys 5th grade Awards Ceremony.  The raffle will be done via a computer program which will select 3 random numbers of the lot of available ticket numbers from 1,000 to 10,309.  The first number selected will be the grand prize winner.  The next two random numbers selected will be the runner-up winners.  The drawing will take place during the award ceremony after the first championship game with the supervision of the two coaches from the first championship game.  Those coaches will witness the entering of the number of random ticket numbers to be selected, the range of ticket numbers available and then one of the coaches will announce the three winning numbers that were randomly selected.  The league will post the winning numbers in the gym during the championship games and award ceremonies as well as post the winning numbers and the names of the winners on the league website.

    Any questions regarding the new process for the annual league raffle should be directed to the Board Members of AYBL.
