We cannot honor requests for specific coaches or teammates. There are no guarantees for teams, coaches, or practice nights. Team placement is final. Coaches will notify parents/players of team placement/practice details between November 7 and 11.
Evaluations: In an effort to make teams
as balanced as possible, we have scheduled evaluations for players based on division. Coaches should plan to attend evaluations and will work together to rate players and then take part in a draft.
