POSTED OCTOBER 21, 2016:
Membership enrollment concluded October 1;
we have 216 member coaches this year, down eight from 224 in 2015-2016. About three fourths of this year's members have
paid their fees; to those who still owe your fees, remember the deadline for payment is December 1.
Listed on the "Documents" page are
links to the district and regional groupings by Class. Check these groupings to see where you will be playing your district
and regional tournaments and who is hosting each of of your tournaments. If you are a host, you should begin contacting
the other teams assigned to each of your tournaments now; see the rules for time frames during which each of the tournaments
should be played and for deadlines for setting tournament dates. If you are not hosting and you do not hear from your
host coaches in a timely manner about setting dates, get in touch with your host coaches and remind them about setting dates.
Later today, you received an email attached to which will be the "Member List" for your class, so that you will
be able to communicate with one another.
Good luck with your teams this year, and remember,
compete well but be sure to have fun as well.
JULY 27, 2016:
to join OJABA for the 2016-2017 school year will be going out soon—by email to last
year's 222 member coaches, and by USPS to over 300 other non-member schools who are eligible to join.
As we have every year, we have tweaked the rules wherever
needed to make them as effective, fair, and equitable as possible. Rules
changes and "tweaks" are printed in red in the rules booklet. You
may view the complete 2016-2017 OJABA Rules
Booklet by going to the "Documents" page.
Again this membership year we are going to use the postal service as little
as possible to
communicate with and distribute forms to our members. Each member must have an email account that is checked frequently
because emailing will be the primary means of communication between officers and members. Members will need to access
our forms (including the rules booklet) by clicking on PDF links on the "Documents"
page, or by email request.

you. Feel free to call us whenever you need to.
