Will teams have practices?
We have set aside a 15 minute time slot before each game for teams to spend as they wish in team development. In addition to this time we will try and secure other gym times. Teams are more than welcome to find a gym on theri own to hold practices any time they wish.

What if I do not like the coach my child was drafted by?
Realize this is just the beginning of many years of playing on teams just like this. Try and work through it talking to your little player. If for some reason you just can’t work it out write us an email with explaining the situation to email@example.com. Realize you will not be about to select the team to want to go to. Playing with someone else must be established ahead of time on registration form.
Will kids be taken out of game if they are getting to physical?
Yes. We will ask every coach to make sure their kids understand the rules of defensive positioning not holding and slapping and running over. If players get to aggressive they need to be taken out of game and instructed how to play defense and then put them back in at a later time to try again.
Do boys and girls play together?
Prefer not. Every year we have enough players to establish all girl teams and all boy teams. This allows both genders to play to their abilities.
Will score be kept during games?
No scoring on scoreboard. We want the kids to be concerned about doing things right, not who is winning.
When will game schedules be posted?
The week prior to the first set of games.
Are the referees official refs?
Maybe or maybe not. We want to allow the games to be played yet get the kids to understand to rules. You’ll see in our rules some have been modified to keep the games going. Referees are encouraged to talk to kids about what they might be doing wrong. This is not to show favoritism but to help teach the game
