Roster Standard

Detailed instructions for filling out a BAYS Roster

All BAYS teams must submit an official BAYS game roster. Computer-generated forms which deviate slightly in format are permissible if all of the required information is included.

Information on the rosters must be typewritten or computer generated. The handwritten addition of player names is not permitted. However, handwritten notations are acceptable for the following:

  • Correct/List uniform numbers
  • Delete players/coaches who are absent from a particular game
  • Addition of a properly-credentialed substitute coach

Use the following table for information on the individual fields on the roster form. The example is based on a fictitious team, the Medfield Strikers, that has been assigned team number 12345 by BAYS and has been placed in Boys Grade 6, Division 2, Section C1
