Team Rosters: Team Rosters will be created through a coach draft process. Non-resident players are welcome to register. However, all non-resident players will be included in the draft process because we make every effort to ensure a competitively balanced league. Depending on registration numbers at each level, we may create multiple draft pools based on participant addresses, with the intention of creating teams in which the majority of players are from the same town. Final registration numbers will dictate draft pools and there is no guarantee this will allow for even player distribution, therefore some teams may have more players than others. Please understand that this year presents some unique challenges and there may not be a perfect solution for all situations but we will make every effort to provide a positive experience for all players.
