What to do if you miss Weigh-Ins and/or Evaluations?

Parents...registered kids NEED to be at weigh-ins and evaluations. However, we understand that vacation time happens in August. Here's what you do in the event your child cannot be at weigh-ins or evaluations.

  1. If your child cannot make weigh-ins, your child must weigh in the first night of evaluations.  (No evaluations will occur without weigh-in information completed)
  2. If your child cannot make evaluations, your child will still be added to a team. 
  3. If your child cannot make both weigh-ins AND evaluations, send an email to the respective Director to organize a time and place to meet with the director and weigh-in.
  4. But if nothing gets figured out and your child cannot get weighed-in or evaluated, he/she will definitely be placed on a team.  

Directors with email links are below:

  • 2nd/3rd Grade = Josh Sasse
  • 4th - 6th Grade = Gary Kowalkowski
  • 7th/8th Grade = Tom Langlais

The weight of your child determines whether they can carry the ball or not. Teams have a certain number of ball carriers, and teams have a certain number of non-ball carriers.
