Team Formation Process
* Teams are created new each Fall season (Season #1). 
* Teams created in the Fall season remain together for the Spring (Season #2).  In season #2 (Spring) new players are added to existing teams as roster space allows, and/or new teams are formed when there are enough players to complete a roster.
* Teams do not "carry over" from the Spring to Fall season.
* During the Fall season registration process, parents may request a teammate or coach for consideration.
* ALL requests are required to be in the Coach Request or Teammate Request field of the player's online registration.
* Email requests cannot be accepted for player-team placement.
* Coaches may not request specific players for their team roster (i.e. sharing an email with a list of players for the team)
* Children of the head coach and assistant coach will be assigned to their team.

Requests to Play Up
* Parents may request siblings be on the same team. Younger siblings may play up one age group only
* Older Siblings may not "play down" with a younger sibling.
* Parents must indicate their request on both player registrations.
* Final approval at discretion of program Director.

Practice Information
Practice times and location are determined by the coach and are limited to a max of two per week.  Attendance at practice is expected but not mandatory.

Game Information
Practices typically begin 2-3 weeks prior to the start of the season.  Weather permitting; each recreational team will play an 8-Game schedule at various locations in the Olentangy School district. Most teams play games on Saturdays, with some games on weekday nights and Sunday afternoons in order to complete all of the scheduled games. OYAA makes every effort to reschedule games' weather-related cancellations if days and field space allow. There are no refunds if all games cannot be rescheduled.

We ALWAYS need good coaches! Lack of coaches is the primary reason that players are turned away. Please volunteer, we provide training and support. Register yourself as a coach when you register your child. Coach workshops and on-field clinics will be held in July and August 2019.
