Register Below - Spring Only 2019

Registering for the Spring Only Wait List indicates that the player would like to be placed on a team only for the Spring Season. Placing a player on the Spring Only Wait List, does not guarantee that there will be a space for your player on a team or that the team assignment will be in your location. Spring Only placement is done on a first-come, first-serve basis and is dependent on openings that become available on current teams. The office will contact players regarding team availability & placement prior to the spring season. If your player is placed on a team, you will be provided with instructions and a link to complete the Spring Only 2019 registration . The fee for Spring Only is $30/player.
