Welcome

Welcome to BARC's registration site with Sports Engine!

REGISTERING

Please read the program description & questions carefully to avoid being placed in the wrong grade, division, or class. Use the comment section for additional information that the program coordinator may need.

Current active registrations:

  • Basketball 
  • Coaches & Volunteer Registration (All team sports)

*The Enrichment Ninja Lab registration is now closed.  The program filled up in less than 2 days and has a wait list equal to the size of the program so we couldn't take any more registrations. If space becomes available, Ryan Cummings will reach out to waitlisted members via email according to the order they are on the waitlist.  We know that this is a very popular program and we hope to offer further sessions in the future. 

Please remember if you would like to coach, you need to register yourself separately through the Coaches/Volunteer Registration. 

INTERESTED IN COACHING?

If you want to coach a sport, just register online through your family account. (Answering 'yes' to the question on your child's registration about being interested in coaching does not register you.) Still have questions? Here are some answers to regularly asked questions:

  • What if I can’t commit to the entire schedule?  We know it’s a big time commitment, but if you partner with another parent to coach & let us know in the comment section of both coaches' registrations who you're partnering with, we will place you together. You can also enlist parent volunteers at the start of the season to cover the occasional game or practice. Many parents are eager to help out, but just can’t do it every week.
    • What if I have one weekday that I can’t be there (for example Wednesdays), can I still coach?  Let us know in the comment section of your registration what weekday it is & we will make sure that you don’t get scheduled that day each week. We can't meet schedule requests for multiple days per week, or for various days throughout the season, but we can typically avoid the same day each week.

    • I don’t have any coaching experience. Can I still coach?  Yes. While coaching experience is helpful, we are a recreational & instructional program. Our rules are basic and are not complicated- especially for the younger age groups. We are here to have fun!

    • Will I get a copy of drills or other training? Yes. You get the rules at the coaches meeting. We also set up one or two clinics prior to the start of the season for coaches- to go over drills & techniques. In addition, we have drills that we email to anyone who would like them. You also  have the support of our Program Commissioners & Technical Coordinators

Please consider signing up to coach. We can’t run these programs without volunteers. If you have not coached before, a background check will have to be completed.

Indicate 'Yes' where asked when registering your child and then email Nora Osuchowski at ballstonarearec.org for the next steps.
