What is the level of competition?
We are open to all skill levels. From beginner to advanced, we are a rec league open to all stages of development. Kids will not be turned away because of their skill.
How will my kid be placed on a team?
There will be a player draft following the evaluations. The player evaluation is November 5th. All registered players, except for K-2nd grade, will participate in an organized practice for evaluation.
Player Evaluation Day Nov. 5th in the gym at Shadow Mountain:
- Grades 3-4 10:15am-11:00am

It is not a tryout, as all registered players will be drafted to a team. Players unable to attend the evaluation or late registrations will be placed on a team at the directors discretion.
When will practice take place?
