Frequently Asked Questions:

Q. Can my child be on the same team as another child?
A. We take requests to match players up with other players on our Draft Day. While we do our best to accommodate all requests, we also need to provide a competitively balanced league. Siblings will be accommodated however if they are in the same division. 

Q. Can my child have a particular coach?
A. We take "coach requests" on our Draft Day. While we do our best to accommodate all requests, we cannot guarantee that a child will be on a specific coach's team. However, if a child's parent or relative is a coach, that child will be on the coach's team.
