FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
See below for a list of frequently asked questions.
TEAMS AND PLAYERS
Can I place my child on a team at The Courts?
The Courts always helps individual players looking for a team. Fill out our online form and we will forward your information to teams looking for players and those teams will contact you.
What are age limits for leagues?
The Courts leagues are limited by grades of players, not ages or birth dates. Players may play in a league for their grade or a higher grade, but may not play in a league for a grade lower than what they are enrolled. The Courts receives numerous calls asking for players to be allowed to play down a league due to size or skill level of a player, or the fact that they are actually younger than the grade level they are playing in. The Courts does reserve the right to amend this rule, but only under special circumstances.
Can my child play on more than one team?
Players may play on two teams in the same division. For more information please visit our Rules & Policies Page.
What kind of uniforms are required?
Teams are required to have shirts or jerseys similar in color with numbers on either front or back. The Courts does not supply uniforms for teams, but if two teams are playing each other with similar colored uniforms, The Courts will supply pennies for the teams to wear for that game.
REGISTRATION AND SCHEDULES
How do I register my team?
A team registration must be turned in prior to the registration deadline. All registrations must be made through our website.
When is our league fee due?
A deposit of at least $150 must be received prior to the registration deadline to secure a spot in the league. A team will not be scheduled if this deposit has not been made. The remaining balance is due at your team's first game.
Do I need to fill out a roster to play in a league?
A team waiver/roster form must be filled out and turned in prior to your first game. A copy of this form may be found at our Rules and Policies page.
What day does a grade play on during a league?
To find a list of days that each grade plays, go to our sign-up page and click on "Learn More" for any of the listed events that are open for registration. All of the details for that event including Scheduled Days of Play for the desired league are listed.
Where can I find my team's schedule?
Schedules can be found on our Schedules/Scoreboard/Sign Ups page by clicking on the appropriate league that is in session. Conferences are designated by grade, ie. conferences starting with 1 are 1st grade, 2 are 2nd grade, etc., with Junior High leagues starting with 7, Junior Varsity leagues starting with 8, and Varsity leagues starting with 9.
Which conferences are non-competitive, semi-competitive, and competitive?
No definite designation is made to determine which leagues are strictly non-competitive or competitive. Sometimes there are multiple conferences of the same level or with limited number of teams, skill levels may be combined to form one conference. Typically the greater the conference number, the more competitive the league. For example, Conference 70 would typically be more recreational than 74, but in the fall, winter, or spring sessions, Conferences 70, 71, and 72 may all be considered recreational leagues.
If my team is unable to play a scheduled game, can it be rescheduled?
The Courts will attempt to help teams that aren't able to make their regularly scheduled games. We do so when it does not compromise another team's schedule and sometimes changes cannot be made.
Can I request to play at certain times and days, or not play at certain times or days?
Scheduling considerations may be asked for prior to the registration deadline. Please view our Game Scheduling Policy on our Rules and Policies page.
Can we play all of our games on the alternate days of play?
A team must make every attempt to play at least half of their games on the primary day of play. When registering, please list the days of play that you are able to attend to better assist in scheduling. For more information on scheduling policies, please view the Game Scheduling Policy at our Rules and Policies page.
