The program creates balanced teams at each grade level. We DO NOT have an A or B team. We are a developmental program where we make all the teams equal in ability. We do not look at schools or neighborhoods to determine the teams. At each age level, the girls practice together so there are no carpool issues. The teams will be determined by late March. We need a couple of practices to see where each kid is at.
PRACTICES: (Starting after April 1 OUTDOORS) Generally two times a week. Each age level practices together as one big group with all the coaches. For example, 3rd/4th grade will all practice together on two days a week. They typically will break into stations and rotate through the stations during practice. Therefore, even if your daughter is not on a team with her best friends, she will be practicing each week with them.
