Detailed instructions for filling out the BAYS Roster Form

All BAYS teams must use an official BAYS game roster. Computer-generated forms which deviate slightly in format are permissible as long as 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 to (a) correct uniform numbers and (b) delete players who are absent from a particular game.

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 547 by BAYS and has been placed in Boys U12, Division 2, Section C.

For rosters submitted electronically, see the supplementary instructions for the eRoster program.
