FAQ's / How are teams selected?

U5 uses the “Jamboree One With One” format. All U5 meet together each week. Please see the U5 Program page for more information.

In the U6, U7 and U8 divisions, teams are formed primarily by zip code. This means that most members of the team and probably the coach will live in the same vicinity. This definitely helps with carpooling.

In the other divisions (also known as competitive divisions) the teams are made up by blind draft using a balancing method developed by the region. The only person guaranteed a spot on a particular team is the coach’s child.
