A: Players will be placed on teams based on birth year and not based on school year like in the past. Also, if you played in the Spring 2023, and you do not age up, you will be placed on the same team unless you request a new team for the Fall. You may not choose your team, but you can request to NOT be on the team your were on in the Spring. New players and players that are moving up(including those who did not play for SISA in the Spring of 2023 will be randomly assigned the same as all others.
Q: What about keeping teams together? What if we want to stay with the same players?
A: For the FALL seasons, players age up so they stay do not together. Players that do not age up do stay on the same team if possible unless they reguest to change.. All request to change are kept confidential. Players that request to change teams can NOT request the team they will go to, unless their parent is stepping up to coach a new team.
They will be placed in a player pool to fill out other rosters on other teams. Parents that choose to step up and coach a team needing a coach will get their child and 1 assistants child, automatically with the remaining be randomly assigned. This is for everyone. If assistants children from the fall stay on the same team, but the assistant can not help, the team does NOT get to choose a new assistant.
Q: Can I get a refund?
A: Once teams are formed there ARE NO REFUNDS.
