* 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

Coach and Friend  -- we try.  we really do.  However, request to play for a specific coach, or to play with a specific friend cannot be guaranteed.


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.


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.
