BTHL 2021/22 Team Applications

By BTHL 06/25/2021, 6:45pm EDT

Team Applications for the 2021/22 season:

We are trying something new with the applications, we hope you find them easier and more streamlined but if you encounter any technical issues please email
As you complete your applications, you may have questions about the "League Last Season" item, since we canceled our season last year. Please select "Buckeye League" if you would normally have played in our league. If you officially played in another league you can select the "Other" option (does not apply to 8U/Mite team applications).
When you submit the form, you should see a page that says your application was received. Invoices will be sent separately via Quickbooks. This may take a few days since we will review applications and ask any questions if necessary. If you need to make corrections to your application information, please send us an email.

Also, a correction to the "AA/A Travel" End-of-Season tournament weekend. We had planned this to take place the weekend of Feb 18-19-20, 2022. It has been brought to our attention that is President's Day weekend and also other tournament organizers will be hosting tournaments that weekend. We therefore will play the BTHL EOS tournament on the following weekend, Feb 25-26-27. As always, we will do our best to avoid it but games may start as early as 12:00 noon on Friday, Feb 25.
