The information provided here is meant to assist you with issues that frequently come up in conversations. If there are other issues that need answers email or call David Hahn at dbhahn45@aol.com or 740 695 4207 or Iggie Padilla padilig47@gmail.com. Parents may wish to have their child moved up due to experience or physical development. Coaches are not able to make that decision; David Hahn and Iggie Padilla must be contacted for these inquiries. Generally, our rule is any child moving up must be emotionally and physically ready and per evaluations be in the upper 50% of the higher group by skills and physical ability.

We strongly discourage parents and coaches from screaming and yelling at the referee. Referees can remove parents, coaches, and players for their behavior at their own discretion and have been trained to do so. Failure to comply with the referee can result in but is not limited to termination of the game or parent coach being asked to leave.

It will be helpful if age group coordinators try to limit one home game per evening for their group or stack games back- to- back so that a referee could do both.
