Honoring Requests:

Balancing talent levels is the primary goal when assembling teams in each division. We do our best to honor practice schedule requests, however, we cannot guarantee that all requests will be honored. We do not honor requests to be on a certain team, or with a particular coach or player. The only exception is for siblings and children living in the same household where age and gender would place them in the same division, such requests must be noted in the comments section of the online registration. Other requests will be honored at the discretion of the League Chair and/or Commissioner, however we make no guarantee they will be honored.
