Friend Requests: Only 1 mutual request for team placement for a friend or coach is looked at. For example, if Player A wants to be a teammate of Player B, Player A must request Player B and Player B must request Player A. Please note that we cannot guarantee these requests. Requests are only accepted during the registration process (please place in the Comment section) -- requests from late registrants cannot be accepted. Due to the complexity of team formations, we are only able to honor one mutual request.
Coaching Opportunities: The 1st & 2nd grade league is a parent-coached program, so volunteer coaches are needed. All coaches will need to go through background check, concussion training and PCA training. We will need head and assistant coaches. Please consider giving a bit of your time and talent!!!
