Internet and Web Site Guidelines

I. General Policy

BRYC Softball encourages and supports its teams in efforts to provide the community with information about BRYC Softball and its services, and to promote girls' fastpitch softball in general.  BRYC Softball maintains a web site for this purpose.  BRYC Softball will link its web page to any team web page that follows the guidelines herein.  No team has the permission to use the term "BRYC Softball" unless it is registered with BRYC Softball and follows these guidelines.

II. Application

These guidelines are current for the 2021 softball season. They will be reviewed annually and may be changed at any time by majority vote of the BRYC Softball Board or at the sole discretion of the BRYC Softball Commissioner.

III. Initial Process

Each Team intending to develop a web page must notify the BRYC Softball Webmaster and Commissioner and designate an individual (the "Team Webmaster") to be responsible for the pages.  The Team Webmaster notifies BRYC Webmaster whether the Team will develop its web page in its own domain or will use BRYC Softball's domain (see special requirements for BRYC Domain below).

All other information about a player (school attended, statistics, personal quotes, etc.), player pictures (group or individual) [with names], or audio and/or video recordings are allowed only if all parents or guardians of the players shown in the print, picture, or recording have signed a release form and understand what publication on the Web means
