How Are Teams Formed?

While we encourage a competitive spirit in all players and coaches, all league decisions are made with the best interest of the majority of children involved.The Recreation Supervisor will select all teams. Placement requests will not be taken; we appreciate your attention to this detail. Every effort will be made to place individuals from the same school on a team together. However, this is not guaranteed.

Volunteer Coaches Needed!

Interested in coaching? You can sign up online while registering your child, at the front desk at The Community House, or you can access the form Volunteer Coach Form here and drop the completed form off at The Community House or email it to kbednar@thecommunityhouse.org. We have a 3 coach max per team. We also will not accept team requests for coaches’ teams. Coaches are responsible for “reffing” the games, handing out team medals, t-shirts, etc.
