1. Do I get to pick which team I'm on?
No. The LYAA divides the teams up evenly by weight so that no one team is significantly larger than any other.
2. When do I need my physical?
Physicals are not needed for the LYAA
3. Do I need my birth certificate to register my child?
No. Our divisions are by the grade you will be entering the fall of the year you are registering for.
4. On the Online Registration section of this website, it showed a date range for my child's birthday? I thought age doesn't matter?
For the online registration system, each grade level needs a rough age range to eliminate all members of this website from being eligible to for registration. This helps to ensure that 99% of the kids eligible for that registration can sign up. If your child does not fit into the age range for the grade registration they are in, please contact the
and we'll take care of you.
5.When will I get my jersey?
Jerseys will be screened, printed and delivered to each coach no later than the morning of your first scheduled game.
