Information: Teams will be divided into three categories, namely (a) 3rd/4th graders, (b) 5th/6th graders and (c) 7th/8th graders (i.e., the grade is the one the player is currently enrolled). Each group will be limited to the first six teams to sign up. Teams can have any combination of players in the age group for a given category. It is suggested that teams have a minimum of six players in order to ensure a full team in case of an unexpected absence, or injury.
