Team registration for the spring season opens January 15th 2022.
Given the short length of the season, placing teams in the right level of play is critical to ensuring that everyone gets competitive games each week. We simply cannot move teams on a weekly basis as a result of the teams being placed in error.
For 2022, we will follow this process:
Team/club register team before March 5th.
League will send clubs a list of registered teams after March 5th.
Club technical staff to approve all team placements by March 12th.
Note that club and team staff should discuss this internally, but the league will take direction only from the club staff - after final team placement teams any team wanting to be moved before the final schedule is released may be subject to a fine of $100.
There will be no re-tiering for U13 and over teams.
Re-tiering will occur for U9 intake to U13 intake teams after the April 9th/10th game weekend. Scores will be made available to club technical staff if requested and, similar to the original placement, team and club staff should discuss any movement requests.
Club technical staff will make re-tiering requests before April 12th. Requests WILL NOT be taken directly from teams.
The final U9 Intake - U13 Intake schedule will be released on April 19th.
There will be no movement of teams before, or after, the re-tiering dates. The 9 week season is simply too short to constantly move teams between groups. There will be no exceptions.
