    Once player registration is completed, coaches hold a player draft in late January to choose players and organize co-ed teams. The draft determines how players are assigned to respective teams. Pre-existing teams will not be preserved.  No guarantee of placement accommodations on requested teams, though every effort will be made to do so. Parents should expect to be contacted by respective coaches by early February.
  • Practices
    Your coach will determine the team's practice day/time and then notify team members after teams assigned.  Practice times will be based on court and coaches availability. In the registration, please indicate which days do NOT work for your child, and every effort will be made to accommodate.
  • Experience
    Previous experience is not necessary. Practices will include basic skills, teamwork drills, and game strategy. Parents are encouraged to work with their children on dribbling, running and techniques learned at practice.
  • Teams
    Each co-ed team will have approximately 6 to 7 players, and all will have equal playing time.
