The league format is:
Under 6 division, both boys and girls play together in a co-ed format. The basic fundamentals of the game are taught. The format is a 3 vs. 3 with no goalie with a maximum of 6 players to a team. The coaches get to oversee this game as they stay on the field and teach our young athletes.

How do we form teams for our recreational leagues?
Our Recreational programs form teams based upon the following format:
COACH REQUEST – If a child wants to play for a certain coach and that coach has not exceeded the total number of players allowed, then we try and place that child with that coach.
PLAYER REQUEST – Generally this is not a problem because we all know that friends want to play with other friends when they can, so if the requested friend registers and they do not have other restrictions such as coach request, then we try and honor the request and place the friends together.
GEOGRAPHICAL LOCATION – When one of the first two are not received then we place players with other players as close to home or school as possible in an effort that they may recognize players or start forming new friendships.
BLIND DRAFT – Well sometimes we just cannot fulfill one of the other three so we then try and form teams by simply using the equal balance drafting procedure in which we go through all registrations left in a division and take one from each pile. The “Pile” is broken down by age and gender.
Once all teams are formed we then rely on Volunteer Coaches to teach your child during the basketball season. If you have ever wanted to get involved with your child, coaching is a great way to do it. Also, all head coaches receive a 50% discount on their child’s registration that plays on that team.
The First step after registration and team formation is the coaches meeting. During this meeting, items such as rules, rosters, and codes of conduct for coaches, players and spectators are discussed. Also, during this meeting each coach has the opportunity to request a practice time that is suitable to their busy schedule. After the meeting the coaches are asked to contact all players on their roster and let them know when practice will be held and the coach’s information such as name, and phone number.
Also, parents can click on the link “FIND MY CHILD’S COACH” to see what coach they have been assigned to and also what night and time they may practice once the coach meeting is held. Once you have been contacted and the first practice is held, the coach will let you know of the first game time or parents can check our web site. It is always best to check the internet for schedule revisions or updates.
