4U SMARTSTART PROGRAM - this is for 3 and 4 year olds.  No practices during the week, and no games.  This is a 1 hour program on Monday nights (6:00-7:00 PM) to help teach fundamentals like dribbling, shooting, passing, etc.  We will ask some parents to help assist in running stations for the kids.  This will either start in early December or we might wait until January to begin the program.  I will work with YMCA on the scheduling.

6U COED - there will be no draft for this age group.  Please note in the Special Requests section if you would like your child to play on the same team as another child or team. This is the one age group that I really need more volunteers as head coaches. 

All other age groups will participate in a draft/skills evaluation.  Your child will not have to participate in the draft IF they are returning to the same age group as last year and wants to return to the same team/coach.  Your child will have to participate in the draft IF (1) they are moving up to a new age group or (2) they are returning to the same age group, but their coach from last year is not returning to coach the same age group

You can request for your child to be on the same team as another player, however, we cannot guarantee that they will be on the same team based on the draft.  This will help from teams stacking players, and on the flip side, I don't want to force a coach to take a lower skilled player just so the kids can be on the same team.  My goal is to have all teams as equal as possible.
