    Can my child play up or down from their current age league?
  • In most cases, children are required to play in their age-appropriate league. Sometimes exceptions are made, particularly in regards to health or safety. If your child has 'exceptional' skills for their age, we offer 'select' travelling teams in most age groups. Any parent wanting to request a child to play up/down must let the current league VP know and bring the request in person to the board during one of the bi-monthly meetings.
