The waitlist is first cleared near the end of August. First priority is any child that has a parent as a volunteer coach or referee. Next, the registration date is used. A child is placed on a new team based on available slots and team balancing factors. This is an over constrained problem. As such, no friend requests or other special requests can be honored at this point in the process. Our goal is to get every child playing; but not at the expense of unbalanced, uncompetitive teams. Once the waitlist is cleared and uniforms are handed out, players cannot be moved between teams and drops are subject to a fee before refunding the registration payment.
Please remember that we are an all volunteer organization made up of parents with either a strong interest (and sometimes professional experience) in soccer or who want to help in their kids activities. It does not help to get upset with a coach or DH about team placement. If the DH cannot answer your questions, you are welcome to contact the Region’s Division Head or Regional Commissioner. But please realize that they tend to encourage those with strong opinions to take on volunteer roles within the Region.
