There are 31 spaces available within each age division. Once we reach 31 registered participants per age, a wait list will be formed. If we have enough athletes register to fill multiple teams we will do so. If we do not receive enough registrations to fill multiple teams, those registered after the first team is full will receive a refund.

- How are teams formed and how is the league facilitated?
Teams are formed by age; teams are not separated by booster club/elementary school as our other sports– all areas are combined by age. The league is facilitated by Roanoke County in which Roanoke will create game schedules.
- What are the age divisions?
8U (7 & 8 years)
10U (9 & 10 years)
12U (11 & 12 years)
- Are there position weight limits?
There are position weight limits, this means that players that do not meet the weight requirements will be “restricted position players”. Restricted position players may never advance the ball. Anytime a restricted position player, identified by their jersey number, comes into possession of the ball during a live play, the ball will automatically be blown dead from the spot. Restricted position players are required to wear a jersey number from 60-69.
- What are the position weight limits?
8U- Position weight limit - 110 pounds (only for age 8, no weight limit for age 7)
10U- Position weight limit - 125 pounds (only for age 10, no weight limit for age 9)
12U- Position weight limit - 130 pounds (only for age 12, no weight limit for age 11)
- How are players weight determined?
Roanoke County will conduct a “weigh-in day” in which staff from Roanoke will weigh players in the upper year of an age division. If a player is not weighed by Roanoke by the weigh-in deadline, that player will automatically become a restricted position player.
- Where are practices held?
Practice location options will be provided by Botetourt Parks & Recreation. Coaches will have the opportunity to choose their practice location among the options provided.
- Where are games played?
Games are played in Botetourt County, Roanoke County, Salem, Glenvar, and Franklin County.
- What days are games?
Games are on some weekdays and Saturdays.
