Team Formation

All teams, grades 3-8, are formed by a coach’s draft. Players are measured for height and evaluated at the Skill Evaluation Day. This information is provided to coaches to select teams. Due to the draft process, no coach or teammate requests will be considered. The only way to guarantee that two kids are placed on the same team is if
parents sign up to coach together. Players are required to attend skill day. Those that do not attend skill day will not be eligible for the coaches draft. They will be
randomly assigned to a team

Practice

Teams practice 1-2 hours per week at various schools. Practice times can be as early as 6 pm and go as late as 9 pm (8:30 pm for 3rd & 4th grade teams). Practice schedules are dictated by coaches; therefore, specific practice schedule requests cannot be honored. (If there is one specific day of the week that your child will not be available to practice, please note on registration).
