How are players assigned to divisions and teams?

There are no player tryouts or drafts for team selections.  Players are assigned to teams according to grade, weight, and location.  They will not be cut, provided they maintain good league standing.  

Team rosters can vary from year to year due to registration numbers.

Team assignments should be finalized by July 1.

Teams will be assigned based on registration numbers. 

What equipment is provided to players?

Players are issued the following equipment for use during the season: helmet, soft shell chin strap, shoulder pads, hip and tail pads, knee and thigh pads, game/practice pants, practice jersey and game jersey.  This equipment must be returned at the end of the season.

In addition to the above, players will be issued one moldable mouth guard at no cost. 

Players will need to provide their own cleats.

When and where are practices held?

Team practices generally start the middle of August.  Actual dates will be posted at a later date.

Head coaches will contact players to notify them of team assignment and will traditionally hold a team meeting on the date team equipment is issued.  Then, if not sooner, team practice sites and schedules will be confirmed and you will have to opportunity to share schedule conflicts that the team should be aware of.

Team practices are normally held at locations as near as possible to the players home address.  However, some players will have further to travel for practices than others.  Practice schedules are established by the coaches to best fit the needs and availability of the team but these are generally held during weeknights prior to and during the season.  Practice frequency, duration, and drills will vary depending upon division.

BEFORE LABOR DAY - Practices are limited to a maximum of 6 to 8 hours per week (depending on the grade Division) and no more than 2 hours per day.  No practices on weekends.

AFTER LABOR DAY - Practices are limited to a maximum of 4 to 6 hours per week (depending on the grade Division) and no more than 2 hours per day.

It is suggested that no practices be held on Wednesday nights after Labor Day.
