Waitlist Instructions
Once the registration spots in a specific division are filled, a waitlist for that division will be created.  You will not be asked to pay when placed on the waitlist.  There are a variety of reasons why someone will be removed from the waitlist and added to a division/team.  When you are notified that you are removed from the waitlist, you will then log onto our website(pvyb.org) and go to the cart, where the registration balance will be shown.  You will have 24 hours to make payment to secure your spot in a division/team.  Failure to make payment in 24 hours will result in the spot being offered to another player and the player failing to respond being moved to the end of the waitlist.

 

Notes: 

If a High School player is on a School District’s team roster they are NOT eligible to play in PVYB.

Based on gym availability and weather issues these above gym schedules info may change…

Please understand that we will not be accepting play with, coach or carpooling requests.  While we understand this may not be convenient to all, there are many factors that are considered when determining team placement which take precedent.  What may seem like a simple request has a domino effect with other teams.  The number of requests can be inundating and slows the registration process.  Thank you for your understanding with this.
