if you will need to purchase socks and a belt),cleats, and a glove. (optional their own

How are positions and playing time determined?
Positions and playing time will be up to the team manager and coaches. It is our goal
however, that every child gets adequate playing time and no child will not be played
in a game unless they tell a coach they are sick.
Who do I contact if I have a problem?
Should something arise you should first speak with your team manager. (Please do
not do this in the heat of the moment, as it usually is better for all time is took to
calm down if angry) If the issue cannot be resolved by speaking with your team
manager you should speak with your division representative. Finally, if all other
avenues have been exhausted you should speak with the league president.

Most likely, Teams will be responsible for pulling shifts in the concession stand and
it will be up to your team manager/team mom to get with parents to designate a
scheduled time during your teams turn in the concession stand.
Will there be league fundraisers?
Yes, we will do a league fundraiser that will be given out by team moms. We will also
be doing a Hit-A-Thon, and parent t-shirt and hats will be ordered through the
