All registered players will be placed on an ALC team. ALC fields teams at the “A”, “Upper B (UB)”, and “Lower B (LB)” levels within all age-divisions.
Player evaluation days are held for ALL registered players to adequately assess and assign each player to the most appropriate team. Beginners through advanced players are encouraged to attend both player evaluation days. In order to be considered for an ALC “A” team, players must be evaluated in advance.
It is our goal to make the evaluation process fun and educational for all involved.
Stay tuned for confirmation on exact time slots for each division.
Volunteers! ALC needs coaches and team coordinators. The number of coaches determines the number of teams. Coaching is a great way to learn the game and contribute to the community.
Team slots are limited. ALC reserves the right to end registration by age level at any time. Each age level is filled on a first-come basis. Registrations received after a division fills are put on the wait list. The wait list players are accepted if there are open slots on the appropriate age level team. Wait listed players are not guaranteed a spot.
