We have a few exciting changes for Spring Season!

1. New Larger Locations

With the rapid growth of our league, we are reducing the number of game locations to four larger locations.  This will allow us to simplify scheduling, reduce travel and allow for some pretty awesome competition at each location!

These larger locations for Spring are:

  1. East Mesa – Desert Ridge Junior High School.  This will serve all east Mesa and many east Gilbert families.
  2. Central Mesa – Taylor Junior High School.  This will serve all central and west Mesa families.
  3. Gilbert/North Chandler – Mesquite Junior High.  This location will serve most of Gilbert and also Chandler families north of the 202.
  4. Queen Creek/South Gilbert/South Chandler – Payne Junior High.  This exciting location will host games for teams from Queen Creek, south Chandler and south Gilbert.
2. No age cutoff change this season!
If you played with us in Winter, your entire team can stay together for Spring.

For our Spring Season, we are offering flag football, volleyball, soccer, baseball, basketball and girls softball.

**We use your child’s age on Dec 31, 2019!**

3. New registration process with team apps!
We have partnered with Sports Engine for our registration and team management.  This will allow all families to download an app that will enable teams to communicate effectively and will also allow you to access league information and alerts.  Please note you will see a small fee when you register.  This processing fee comes from Sports Engine and not from the league.
