Player Release

All players who do not reside in the Bytown Dodgers player boundary require a release from any active OBA teams for which they are in the boundary of. Players do not require release from Little League associations*. If you have any questions about releases, determining which team area you are in, please contact us.

Players who do not reside in the Bytown Dodgers player boundary, but do reside within the NCOBA region, should contact us for guidance on the OBA Rep playing opportunities that are available through your local association.  More information on the local associations that make up NCOBA can be found on the NCOBA website (, and information on player boundaries and player release policies at:

* While release from Little League is not required to play for an OBA rep team, players are not permitted to play for both a Little League Association, and an OBA rep team in the same season.
