Yes, we went with a 6 game season (with a single elimination playoff) due the increased costs(all costs have skyrocketed refs, court time, our background check, insurance, teamsnap platform but we didn't want to compromise on what we offer), and plus the frequent changes in public policy better to have a short season. We are a year round league and many of the participants play year round. The shorter season is more conducive to the year round model.

It is easy, simply register to coach on the coach registration form (select the player pay coach registration) . Then have the players register under the normal player registration. They will pay $225 each during the registration process. Once the players and coach are all registered the commissioner will create a team in the system and add all the players and coach to the roster. The team roster will be visible on the app and the teampage on the website. Practice and game schedules will be visible in the app and teampage when they become available.

Alley-Oop strives to not conflict with major sports in the local area but sometimes it is unavoidable. In Winter games will be Friday nights and Saturdays. So plenty of time for other sports!
We do take schedule requests from Coaches. To help eliminate conflicts. Coaches must submit requests via email and put "Winter Season Schedule Request" in the subject line. Only one email will be read. So do not send multiple and expect us to connect the dots. Texts and phone conversations are not considered requests.
Friday and Saturday Nights. Friday games will be between 5-9:30pm. Saturday game days may start before 5pm as early as 1pm if we have a high number of teams. Also we do take schedule requests from coaches. Coaches must submit requests via email and put "Winter Season Schedule Request" in the subject line. Only one email will be read. So do not send multiple and expect us to connect the dots. Texts and phone conversations are not considered requests.

TeamSnap is the leading provider of online registration and web design for youth sports clubs and organizations. Alley-Oop is making the switch to help improve the customer's experience. Blue Sombrero was the previous provider and was not excelling in user interface and offering a functional app. So to better serve the league we are making the switch.
The Skill Evaluation will be held on the week of November the 8th More details will follow as we get closer.
