HOW YOUTH LEAGUE WORKS
Athletes are to create a team of 6 players within their appropriate age category and will have the chance to compete against other teams from around Edmonton and surrounding areas at The Center. Age categories are distributed as follows: U13/14, U15/16 and U17/18.
Athletes are to create teams of 6 players -12 players and register as a single team. Teams just need to ensure they have a minimum of 6 players always present on their night of play. Our goal is to provide athletes with an opportunity to compete in 6 on 6 game play in a league format.
Initial tiers will be created based on requests from registered teams (dependent on numbers).
Registrations will be taken on a first come, first serve basis for both sessions.
