All head and assistant coaches must be background checked and take online Safe Sanctuary training. Coaches clinics are required. Please note the dates.

We do not offer seperate girls teams. Girls and boys play on the same teams together.

The league does not accept friend requests. Two players are assured to be on the same team only if their parents are coaching together. Teams are intended to be equal in ability and are formed in this manner: 

  1. coaches / coaching partnerships are determined
  2. practice nights and times are assigned based on coaches needs and players ages
  3. coaches children are placed on their teams
  4. teams are completed using practice night availability provided during registration to the best of our ability, and the player evaluation skills assessment ratings.
