Team Selection

  • The coach's child plus those of assistant coaches will be protected during the draft. Any assembled teams with less than 10 kids will have the opportunity to draft individual registrants as the other teams in the league add players and the numbers are even for all teams.
  • Boys and girls will play in divisions with children in the appropriate grade levels. However, it may be necessary to combine certain groups to field a sufficient number of teams for a league.
  • We will do our best to fill any special requests as it relates to children playing together, but we cannot guarantee all requests.
