Yes, you will see the section to add a coach or friend/family member. We will do our best to honor all requests, however, we cannot guarantee your requests. If you sign up late, we will have to place you wherever there is an opening on a team.
Your child may play up a grade but never down. To make putting teams together easier, please register for the grade you would like your child to play in.

Minimum of 6 players. Teams do not exceed 10 players per team so every player can receive a fair amount of playing time. Each player is to play at least ½ the game. If a player misses practice before a game, play time is up to the coach but has to be discussed with parents before game.

Yes, we have many coaches that have 2 or more teams. Just know that we try our best to make accommodations for the head coaches so you will have at least 1 hour in between games. We suggest always having an assistant coach if anything comes up. It is very hard to change schedules with so may having multiple teams.
Because we have so many coaches that have 2 or more teams inside of Wham it is very hard to also include obstacles outside of Wham. We cannot make the schedule or make changes for anything outside of Wham.
