TEAMS:

All recreational teams are formed within each age group by a number of factors - coach requests, teammate requests, school attending, and neighborhood. Special requests must be made through a parent note during the online registration process.  While we try to honor special requests we cannot guarantee that all requests can be met.  Date of registration will be the determining factor if a team receives more requests than can be met. Special requests can only be made online at time of registration. The special request box is in Step 1 – Registration; located to the right of the program you select.

NOTE: Teams will not be rearranged to accommodate requests made during the late registration period for the season. 

All Recreational team information including team rosters, coaches, and practice days and times are finalized after the schedule Recreational Coach Clinic/Meeting normally the Saturday before the first week of practices. All Recreational coaches are asked to start contacting all their players after the Recreational Coach Clinic/Meeting.
