In effort to maintain fair competition in the league, a pre-season draft is implemented. Coaches are invited to preview players at an organized skills assessment session for their division and encouraged to note players they would consider choosing for their team. ALL PLAYERS (including children of new coaches and coaches moving up) MUST PARTICIPATE IN A SKILLS ASSESSMENT SESSION or will be randomly drawn at the end of the draft. The official draft takes place one to two weeks after skills assessment where coaches would choose their team based on available players. Parents and players will be contacted by their coach within one week after draft selections are made and teams are determined.
