Getting placed on a team?
If your child has not been placed on a team, we ask that you attend our draft/evaluation date. During this time, we will have the opportunity to put your child through numerous drills to evaluate their skill set. This gives us an opportunity to satisfy that teams are assembled fairly and meet their potential coach.
If you cannot make your assigned date feel free to send us an email and we will assure you are placed on the right team based upon your evaluation worksheet. Once these dates are completed your coach will contact you with dates and times of your next practice.

How do I get my practice dates?
Coaches should’ve already sent their request on what dates works for them and their team. If you have not please send your request ASAP. We have asked teams to choose two locations (Canfield St Michael's and Salem Community Center). Every team in our league has chosen St Michael's Church for their practice site. During the months of January and February practice times are extremely limited.
All teams will have their 1st practice with the league starting Saturday January 23rd or Sunday January 24th. We will hold practices between the times of 8am to 2pm on Saturday and 1pm to 5pm on Sunday. There are 4 courts available for each time frame. Coaches can request one or more courts to accommodate parents. Email us your availability for those dates. If you need a later time please let us know.
Can I get my child and his/her friend on the same team?
Yes, parents will have to make sure during the registration process they request their coach and or players they would like to play with. If you are not on a team yet you have the opportunity during the draft/evaluation to fill out your form. If you did not attend the draft please email us so we can accommodate.
Team/ player request is not guaranteed! We will always try our best to accommodate each request.
