  • Do all team members have to be the same grade/age?
    Teams are bracketed by grade-level according to the highest grade-level on the team. You cannot play down in a division/grade. We do have some combined divisions. Keep in mind however, that it may not be possible to bracket teams with very diverse player characteristics against other teams of similar makeup and youth and high school teams will be bracketed by grade-level according the highest grade-level on the team. Be prepared to submit proof of grade/eligibility with a school record or report card.
  • Can I play on more than one team?
    While we do allow individuals to play on more than one team (teams must be in dissimilar brackets), we cannot control game schedules to guard against scheduling conflicts. Individuals playing on multiple teams could have multiple games scheduled at the same time.
  • Can we enter a co-ed team with only one member of the opposite sex?
    Yes. Keep in mind, however, that co-ed teams must have members of the opposite sex on the court at all times. Therefore, on a team with three males and one female, the female would have to play the entire time, each game with no rest. If this female would become injured or otherwise unable to play, then the entire team would be disqualified.
