Players are not guaranteed assignment to specific teams. Placement of players is not up for discussion for any reason.
Age Group Placement
All players will be assigned to his true league age group. Players are not allowed to choose to play up. If the program ends up with too many or not enough players in an age group we may be forced to move some players from one age group to another. If this occurs it will be up to the coach that is moving players to decide which players will be moved. This situation will be avoided if at all possible.
There are GOLD teams (1st or A) at all ages, BLUE teams (2nd or B) at most ages, and WHITE teams (3rd or C team) at a few ages. All players will be evaluated and assigned to teams by coaches during the first few weeks of practice. Football is a travel program so there are no guarantees that siblings, relatives, or friends will be placed on the same team or at the same skill level. Each child is evaluated based on their own abilities and will be placed accordingly.The teams will be separated based on age, weight, athletic ability, aggressiveness, experience, and position availability. The Gold and Blue teams play in different divisions against different levels of competition.
The Gold, Blue, and White rosters are decided yearly and may be changed from season to season due to player development, transferred players, and new signees. All players will start with the Gold team. The Head Coach of the Gold team gets his choice of the players he would like to keep and he will decide which players will be moved to the Blue team. If there is a White team the Blue team coach will decide who gets moved to the White team. There is no guarantee of a Blue and/or White team at all age groups.
You will be contacted by a Gold team coach to inform you of the time and location of your first practice.
Jersey #’s are not guaranteed from one season to the next. We will attempt to hold jersey #’s for returning players for the first few registrations. This means a returnee could need to buy a new jersey with a new #. We do our best not to assign duplicate #’s at an age group, though we have had unexpected player movement within age groups bring up that problem. Sign up as early as possible to try and secure your jersey # if that is important to you!!!
