Top Level Navigation
At the very top of the BBSAOnline.com page you will see file tabs for Home, Team, Parents, News, Board Info, About BBSA and Admin. After you click on one of these tabs, the menu on the left edge of the page changes to show the options available for that tab. Note that if there is a triangle darkened in the lower right corner of the option you select, further pages are available under that option.
You are already on the Home Page when you arrive at our web site. The left-edge menu options for the Home tab give access to general information that applies to all members.
(Note: The Team tab only displays once the new teams have been defined for the upcoming season).
This is where you′ll be able to view the schedule, roster, and bulletins for your specific team. Use the drop down menus at the top to find your team. First use the "League" drop down menu to select the level your team plays at: Baseball Teeball, Softball Majors, etc. Next use the "Team" drop down to choose the team you wish to see.
The left-edge menu options for the Team tab give you a variety of ways to look at your team's schedule. If you click on "Schedule" it will list each practice and game, in a day-by-day tabular fashion. Make sure that you click "Show Non-Games" and the schedule will include all practices as well. (Note that not all managers will load their practices onto the scheduler.) Click "Calendar" if you would rather view the schedule in a calendar form. The "Results" option shows results for games that have already occurred, but only if your division keeps score and the results have been entered. The "Multi-Schedule" feature allows you to see the schedule for several teams at one time. You can also download these in several formats to import into your calendar programs.
The team roster can also be found on this page. Note that for safety purposes, this information is password protected. If you do not have your password, please contact us and we will get that for you. Key contacts are also listed so you are able to contact your coach via phone or email. RSS feeds are also available for those parents using that feature.
Code of Ethics Tab
This is where you'll find the Parent's Pledge and our Code of Conduct agreement.
All of the BBSA Board Member volunteers spend a tremendous amount of time and effort focused on providing the best for our baseball and softball players. This is where you can find the names, titles and contact information for all BBSA Board Members. As well, this is where the list of current Committees and their respective members. Under this tab is where the BBSA Board members store the meeting minutes from each board meeting. This area is password protected. And, lastly - but not least - the BBSA ByLaws are available here as well.
