Playing Up & Down

Playing Up
A child Playing Up (PU) in an older age division.  This Special Request (SR) can be submitted on the player signup form, Player Placement Section. Those submitting this request need to be confident that their younger child can compete with the older children to some degree, and understand what is being taught by the coaches to some degree.  These SR's will be decided on a case-by-case basis each season.

Playing Down
A child Playing Down (PD) in a younger age division. This Special Request (SR) can be submitted on the player signup form, Player Placement Section. Those submitting this request can do so if their child has a handicap, or because their child's size and ability is that of the younger children. These SR's will be decided on a case-by-case basis each season. Should a player whose request to play down be approved, and this player turns out to be a dominant player on multiple occasions, the player will be asked to transfer to their own age division, and pay a $35 Transfer Fee to cover their new-late team shirt.

Playing Up & Down
For those that contemplating submitting a request to have a child play up or down because it would be more convenient for you to have your children on the same team, this all too often isn't in the best interest of one of the children. What can possibly be done to help you to some degree is for you to ask if your children can have the Same Practice Night (SPN).
