When you register, you will have the option to list a friend, sibling, or coach that you would like to have placed together with your child. Sibling requests are guaranteed, as are requests by coaches to coach their own child. The vast majority of the time, we are able to accommodate friend requests. These requests are not guaranteed, however, as on rare occasions, we are not able to accommodate them.
We do currently accept team registrations. First, the coach must contact the league directly to have a team created in the registration system and to choose a team name. Next, the league adds the team to the registration system. Players then are able to choose that team during the registration process.
Coaching in our youth league programs can be a fun and rewarding experience. The commitment is limited to a few hours each week. Most coaches decide only to practice on game day (1) hour before the game.
League age is determined as of the cut-off date, which is September 1 of the year in which the season begins, meaning that your child’s age on September 1st determines which bracket they should be placed in. For example, a child with a birth date of September 3rd, 2005 would have a league age of 13 (his/her age on September 1st, 2019). A child with a birth date of August 20th, 2005 would have a league age of 14.
