Age Division of Play – this is the Division level you want to play – not necessarily the roster age of the team.

Level of Play – this lists all potential division levels:


i.      Elite is the top interleague division for U12 and older.


ii.     C is rarely used, but signifies the team wants to play in the lowest division possible.

f.

If your team needs a blackout date for any reason, this would be “Yes.” Reasons to think about needing blackout dates: tournament, school events (track meets, prom, graduation), church events (confirmation, 1st communion) where a significant number of players on the team would not be able to come on the particular date. Limit will be 3 for the spring since Easter is already set in the system as a blackout date.
