FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Can my child be placed on a team with his friends from school?It is the intent of the league to balance teams throughout the league by age, without regard for schools or neighborhoods of residence. Therefore, the league does not honor requests for special placement of players on teams.
What if my child plays soccer and we have schedule conflicts with baseball?Children (and their parents), today, have many activities to participate in. Baseball, being a team sport, depends on the unity of a team and commitment of each player on the team. Prior to registering, please consider the amount of time you and your child can invest. Attendance is expected at team practices and league games, understanding that summer is the time for family activities. Players will not be penalized because they have missed practice. The rules of the league ensure equal playing time for all members in all positions.
