Teams must play to the oldest player on the roster. E.g. if there is a player that falls into the U8 category and the rest of the team falls into the U7 category, the team must play U8.

Teams that have registered for Session 1 or Session 3 before the designated Session 2 deadline will have a guaranteed spot in Session 2 unless the session fill sup before the deadline.

Each player is responsible for submitting their own medical waiver. Player cards are not required for U6-U8 players.
