This will allow for coaches to assess their team and player skill level to come up with an appropriate lineup for the games.

Games will have no referees. Coaches will ref the game for obvious infractions/violations. Games may be stopped to coach in a positive manner. Water breaks will be given at the end of each quarter.

SCORES OR RECORDS WILL NOT BE KEPT!! The design of this “league” is based on children developing skill at their own pace, building confidence and above everything else, HAVING FUN! Negative sportsmanship will not be tolerated by children or adults!
