• Shin guards are MANDATORY for both practice and games.

We will attempt to honor car pool and teammate requests written on the registration form. We cannot guarantee that car pool requests or teammate requests will be honored since our first priority is to make teams within each division as fair and balanced as possible. Car pool requests may only be made with players in the SAME division. A MAXIMUM of three players may be listed. We will NOT switch players at the start of the season to different teams for this purpose, requests MUST be stated on the registration form. If a player has a good friend who he or she would like to be placed with, please list him or her in this section of the registration form. Car pool requests received after August 10th will most likely not be honored since we must begin the difficult task of making team assignments at that time.

Our program is dependent on having parents of players volunteer as coaches. PLEASE give consideration to volunteering as a coach, thank you. We provide head coaches with ample coaching material in order to make the program a success. You do not need to have had played the game, you only need to have an interest in working with a small group of children and an ability to stay one or two steps ahead of them in learning the game.

We also need people to volunteer to be Division Commissioners. Their responsibilities are administrative, i.e., making team assignments for the older divisions, switching players from one team to another when necessary, making phone calls in the event of rainouts, distributing end of season trophies, etc.

If you are interested in serving as a Division Commissioner, head coach or assistant coach, PLEASE indicate this on your registration. Also, if you are planning on coaching, please send in your registration form AS SOON AS POSSIBLE. Your help in this matter will be greatly appreciated so we can mail coaching materials, make coaching assignments, etc.


Several school district and township fields will be closed this year for renovations. As a result, we do not know at the present time which divisions will play at which field locations. We anticipate that all divisions will be playing at fields inside of Lower Merion Township, but we do not know which divisions will play where. Our web page will provide this information as soon as we know what fields are available for the fall season.
