PROGRAMS & AGE GUIDE
  • Teams will be formed based on volunteer coach availability in 6U - 19U.
  • Registration for some divisions in 14U - 19U will be via waitlist, you will not pay until activated.
  • All players should register under the "Spring 2023" program, the registrar will transfer players as needed. 
  • Please read about the spring season format below.
  • The system will show you available programs based on player birth date (please see the age determination chart to the right)
  • Players play in same division as in the Fall season - requests to "play up" will be considered based on the player's maturity, sportsmanship, and skills, the balance of teams, and the enrollment in the affected divisions
  • 7U and 8U are combined into the 8U division; 8U will be playing 6 v 6
  • Players aged 3.5-5 may have program options - read more about our programs for Young Players

SPRING SEASON FORMAT

  • The spring season in 6U & 8U is basically like the fall season - we follow our general player request policy (see below) for these divisions. We do allow for some player/coach requests in 10U and above in spring. Requests are never guaranteed. Our number one goal is to create divisions that foster a fair and fun playing experience for ALL teams.
  • The 10U and above divisions are bound by the Area 11K rules for the Spring season. We offer a REC (recreational) and SELECT play for 10U-14U. REC is our general "core" program in which the vast majority of players will play. SELECT is intended for more competitive play. 
  • Fall EXTRA teams carry over and are expected to play in the EXTRA program for spring; in some cases, they will play in SELECT. The EXTRA coordinator and the Registrar will work with EXTRA coaches directly for spring placement. 
  • In SELECT and UPPER DIVISION (16U & 19U), our teams are "coach driven". This means our volunteer coaches can build/recruit teams. Coaches who want to play in SELECT, will need to reach out to the division coordinator who will consult with the Coach Admin and Registrar to discuss team building. Depending on the availability of additional volunteer coaches, we may not have more than one team in our 14U and above divisions.  
  • Please note that even if players are requested/recruited for a team, those players must be registered prior to the division becoming full or the registration deadline (whichever comes first), in order to be placed on the requested team. We will NOT hold places for players who aren't registered - all roster spots will be filled by registered players on a first come, first served basis.
MAKING REQUESTS
  • Be sure all player/coach requests are indicated where asked during registration. If you forgot or need to add/update, log into your account and click on the pencil icon next to your player's name; look for your player's spring registration questions, complete the info, and click save/update.
  • Coaches, please check in with your coordinator if you have questions.

PLAYER REQUEST POLICY

6U/7U/8U Divisions

  • Head Coach may make two "requests":
    1) Assistant Coach (and his/her player)
    AND
    2) EITHER a player whose parent is willing to be the Team Manager, OR a player whose parent is willing to be a Referee. The second player parent needs to be a currently registered volunteer and certified for the position.
  • Head Coach CANNOT request any other volunteers/players.
  • Requests from one player to be with another player may be honored so long as they aren’t either of the two players picked by the coach and so long as they players aren’t trying to “daisy chain” together a whole team.


10U & Above Divisions

  • Coach can pick Assistant Coach as long as team balance can be maintained by the request.
  • Coach CANNOT request any other players.
  • Requests from one player to be with another player will be ignored.

**DO NOT PLAY WITH REQUESTS: 
We will always honor a warranted 'do not play' request, if possible. As teams become larger and fewer teams are available, this may not always be possible. The parent will have to decide if they want to drop if the request cannot be honored.
