Most games will be played on Saturday or Sunday while some teams will play an occasional Friday evening game. Recreational teams will typically play one game per weekend (this could be on Saturday or Sunday) while athletic teams will typically play one game on Saturday and one game on Sunday on a given weekend.
A pod is a way that we group teams to allow for the best combination of competitive play and the least amount of travel time. For recreational divisions, teams will be grouped into a pod based on geography to cut down on travel time and to promote a sense of community. Athletic teams are expected to travel and will most likely NOT be placed into pods unless there is a very large number of registered teams per grade/playing division.
All teams will play in a season ending tournament that will be single elimination format. Teams may be grouped in divisions for the tournament that look slightly different than the divisions they played in during the regular season in order to make the tournament more competitive.
All athletic teams will be play 20 regular season games, usually two per weekend. Teams will be evaluated during the winter break to determine if they should be moved up our down between high and low divisions in our athletic program if applicable for their age group.
All recreational teams will be play 10 regular season games, usually one per weekend. Teams will typically be scheduled to play 3 games before the winter break to allow the league to evaluate whether or not they should be moved up our down between high and low divisions in our recreational program if applicable for their age group. We are offering a 20 game high recreational schedule for the 2016-2017 season for 4th-6th grade boys.
