15U and older: Primary Sunday afternoons starting at 1pm (possible Saturday overflow)

For 11U and up teams, we do our best to maintain whole age groups or even 2 year age groups. Depending on the numbers sometimes we combine age groups to create teams. In the ISA Central Level 3 League we can also register small sided teams where 13U and up teams can play 6 v 6. The number of players on a roster and the way they are grouped is all dependent on the number of players that register in each age group.
