Our League Divisions


In an effort to create a more competitive and developmentally appropriate playing experience for our athletes, we form our teams based on age, experience, and skill level. 


To ensure that athletes are placed in the most appropriate division, our league registration requires attending our Evaluation Day. Evaluations are a way for coaches to see where your child is in terms of abilities. This helps us place them on a team that is well suited for them. No cuts will be made. 

Once evaluations have concluded, we will assemble teams and assign coaches. You will then receive your team assignment information via email. 



*Mainly consists of the following grade levels

Sparks Divison


2nd - 5th grade


Flames Division


5th - 7th grade


Fire Division


7th - 8th grade


Blaze Division


9th - 12th grade
