It is important to understand that recreational age groups are different than competitive age groups. We want recreational players to have the ability to play with kids in their school grade. However, competitive teams (including PDL) will have to follow state and national mandates and play with kids who were born in the same year.
ARSENAL COLORADO RECREATIONAL LEAGUE FORMAT
Teams will be formed based on gender, age and school. Teams will be formed based on school preference with combined teams formed as necessary based on school geography and player numbers. Players will be allowed to play up one age group in order to align with future PDL or competitive placement and other reasons with staff permission. Players can play down, but ONLY if they are playing grade appropriate.
Roster sizes for teams are: Pre-K (U5) age group plays 3 v 3 (roster size 6); Kindergarten and 1st grade (U6 & U7) age groups play 4 v 4 (roster size 7); 2nd, 3rd, and 4th grade (U8-U10) play 7 v 7 (roster size 10); 5th/6th grade (U12) play 9 v 9 (roster size 12); 7th/8th grade (U14) play 11 v 11 (roster size 15) and high school (U18) play 11 v 11 (roster size 15).
Players have the opportunity to request a coach (not guaranteed) and to request a player(s) (not guaranteed) they would like to be placed with. Please recognize it is not possible to honor all requests – priority will be given to players who request to return to their team from the previous season.
