League Fees: The cost is $275.00 per player. Teams must have at least ten players and no more than fifteen. The fee for Mini Mites will be $150.00 per player.
Divisions: Teams must register for the division they will be playing in next season (younger Mite players can choose to stay at the same level they played last winter). Players and teams may “play up” a division but MAY NOT play down. A minimum of 4 teams in two tiers is required to tier a division. Please play in the highest division possible to ensure a competitive league. If you are uncertain which level to register at, please contact us.
Tiering will be based on our ranking system. Each player will receive a number based on the level that he or she played at during the previous winter season. If a player is moving up a division, we will subtract 1 point from that player’s score (i.e. a PW AAA player moving up to the Bantam division will have a score of 5 minus 1 for a total of 4). We will then take the average of all the players on your team to determine your team average. Teams will be grouped in appropriate tiers based on your team average. Coaches will no longer be able to choose their team’s tier – your team will be assigned to a tier.
· 1 Point – House / C
· 2 Points – B
· 3 Points – A
· 4 Points – AA
· 5 Points – AAA
Please be advised that we reserve the right to move teams within the first month to make games more competitive.
