Rosters:

Teams are formed by participants requesting "friends" and "coaches" to paly for during the season.  Friend requests must be made with players that play within the same Division based on their SCHOOL GRADE.   The divisions are as follow (K-2, 3-4, 5-6, 7-8).  We do not allow players to play up in Division without the Commissioners and Head Coaches approval.

Please do NOT request a specific coach unless you have had a conversation with them regarding your child joining their team (many coaches have established full rosters already).  All requests must be given on the registration form.  We will work to meet your specific request, but we do not guarantee that any or all of your requests will be met.  REFUNDS will NOT be given if Under the Lights is unable to meet your special request.  

THERE ARE NO FRIEND OR COACH REQUESTS HONORED IF REGISTRATION HAPPENS AFTER THE REGISTRATION CLOSING DATE.  THOSE PLAYERS WILL BE PLACE IN AN OPEN AVAILABLE ROSTER SPOT.

Single players will be placed on teams based on some form of familiarity through same school, sports organization , neighborhood etc.
