Play-Up Requests -  Parents you should ONLY select "yes " to this question during registration if you want your player to be moved UP a year to play with the next aged Division ie if your players birth year is 2016 (U7) but you believe they are advanced enough to play with the older players in 2015 (U8) and its developmental appropriate to move them UP a year, then select "yes" to the Play UP question otherwise please do not select Yes.    Most of the time parents DO NOT make a play-UP request as the player is usually better playing with his age group during the Season.

For ages 2004 through 2013 additional Referee Fees may apply for Saturday Games (collected at the field)
