Dear NHBA Community,
As many of you have already read, earlier in the week we received updated guidance from the State of California which gives us a path to finally return to game play.(click link for official message RETURN TO PLAY
This is very encouraging news and with it, NHBA is preparing to start our Spring Season on our regular cadence. Here are key dates as we enter the New Year.
-Recreation registration is OPEN and we will continue to take sign ups without fee's until we have 100% confirmation on the start of games. Link for recreation registration
-Mariners Select tryout registration is OPEN. If your young athlete is trying out for Select, they must be registered and there is no fee. Mariners Select Tryout Registration
-Champions Division registration is OPEN specifically for children with special needs. Can be any age and there is no cost for the program.
