Where do you practice?

We match kids to the closest coach to where they live. It is coaches' discretion to where to practice.
We may also have reserved park space for limited number of teams to use during the week. (Some may be lighted)
Coaches can elect to add a lighted practice field for an additional fee.

We currently have over several hundred kids playing each season. That is about 65 to 70 teams total for all divisions.

Is there a late registration?

If a team has availability we can sometimes add late players. We have to expedite equipment for those new players. In order to accomplish this we need to charge a higher fee plus a $30 expedite fee.
