Are there tournament/weekend games?

All league games are scheduled during the week for spring/summer. Your spring/summer registration fee pays for 2 tournaments, one of which is the Roseville Rumble, in addition to the State Qualifiers. Al league games are scheduled for the weekends in the fall. Your fall registration fee pays for the fall state tournament. 

Are there State and National tournaments available?

Yes, Your team can qualify for the State tournament at the end of the spring/summer league. Teams can also qualify for National bids through the tournaments they play in throughout the seasons.

When are practices?

Practice schedules are determined by the coaches but are typically on the same night as games (non-game nights) in addition to Sunday evenings. 

How do I know what age level my daughter should play in?

Age divisions are based on the calendar year. The age of the athlete on January 1 will determine which level she will play in during the spring/summer season. For example, if your daughter is 11 or 12 on January 1, she will play in the 12U level that spring/summer. Fall ball is used as a pre-cursor to the next spring/summer league, so there is an opportunity to move up in the fall based on the age of your daughter on the next January 1 date. There is a useful chart under the registration tab.
