About Our League

Registration is available for boys and girls Pre-K (4-year-olds) through 6th grade. The teams will be put in divisions as follows:

• Pre-K–Kindergarden: Coed
• 1st–2nd grade: Boys
• 1st–2nd grade: Girls
• 3rd–4th grade: Boys
• 3rd–4th grade: Girls
• 5th–6th grade: Boys
• 5th–6th grade: Girls

Each team will be assigned practice for one night a week, either Monday, Tuesday or Thursday. At registration time you can indicate if there is one of these nights that you CANNOT practice. You will be assigned to a team according to your available practice night.

Our first game will be January 11 and will run for eight weeks. Assigned team and game schedules will be released the week after Thanksgiving prior to the first practices. At the end of the season, on March 4, we will have a celebration/award ceremony.
