Mid-Winter registration opens October 1st, and closes December 18th. After the registration deadline, late registration is based on availability and is not guaranteed. Once registration is full, we will build a waitlist and fill openings from the waitlist on a first come - first serve basis. A $25.00 increase in registration will apply and you will be placed on any team that has openings in your grade division. Buddy requests are less likely to be met during late registration.
