Players must play in their grade level.
Grades 5th and 7th: Players have the option to play for the same coach as the prior year if the coach is registered for the season to coach. If they choose not to, the player will be placed with a different school team, if available, and on space available basis. If a different school team is not available, the player will be placed on another roster on a space available basis. All players who wish to return to the same coach/team MUST have their registration in by October 1st. If registration is received after October 1st, the player will be placed on a school team, if available. If a school team is not available then the player will be placed on another roster, if space is available.
