How will I get my player's uniform?

Can I select specific practice days when I register?
No, unless you are the coach of an 8U & up team. Coaches choose their team’s practice night. This is one of the advantages to coaching your player’s team!
Our coaches are flexible. They will contact you regarding working out a practice night that works for all the players on the team.

Can I select a specific coach when I register?

No. We will not honor any requests for a specific coach. Coaches cannot request specific players.

Can I request that my player play with a specific player?

We will not honor player requests. If you coach with another parent then your players will be placed on the same team with both of the parents as the coaches.

My player's other parent registered my child, how do I log into their account?
The Primary Account User can send you an invite to be an Additional User on the account with which your child was registered. To invite an Additional User to your account, click on the gear icon in your account to "Edit Account Info", scroll to bottom of Primary Parent/Guardian Info page and click on the green "Add Secondary Account Holder" button.
How do I know what team my player is on?
Your player's coach will contact you once they receive the team roster and it will be posted on Team Central.

How do I know my player's game schedule?

Schedules are finalized prior to the start of the season. Coach will communicate schedules to you and this will be posted on Team Central.

How many coaches are assigned per team?

At least one coach is assigned per team, preferably two. It all depends on the number of volunteers who have registered. If your player’s team has only one coach, please consider volunteering to be the assistant coach. Everyone needs a back-up.


  • If your player's division below shows that it is 'Wait List Only' please do still sign up. These divisions may be on a wait list because we do not have enough volunteer coaches.
  • Without your player's name on the wait list we have no way of knowing what the actual interest is for that division.
  • If your player is activated from the wait list you will receive an email asking for you to complete registration.
  • If you have any questions at all please email our Reginal Registrar at [email protected]
