How Are Teams Formed?2024-05-01T18:00:28-06:00

Teams are formed through a few different steps. First players are put into divisions trying to keep them single-gender and single age groups. If that doesn’t work we will combine ages until we have enough players for a few teams. Then we look at schools, which was selected in registration, and try to place teams in similar locations. If there aren’t enough players in a school area we will combine some, and then finally review requests.

We will do our best to honor buddy requests. Only one mutual request per player is allowed. Requests are not guaranteed.

Reasons a request may not be granted could be: if the players are not the same birth year, players are located at different schools or requested teams have a full roster.
