Registration will totally close January 12, 2017. Early registration is suggested. Once teams fill, registration will close. This means that registration may close early.

All players are required to have a current US Lax membership valid through June 2017. In addition, players are required to purchase a uniform and all required equipment.
9) Can I register and not submit payment?
A. A registration is not complete until payment is received. Any payment after December 31, 2016 will incur an additional charge of $25 regardless of when you registered. A registration without payment does NOT hold a spot for your daughter on a team. Payment at the time of registration is encouraged. You will not get a reminder to submit payment from the league. Once teams fill, registration will be closed.
10) Do I have to purchase a US Lax membership?
A. Yes, the league requires all participants to have a current US Lax membership. The cost of that membership is $30. This is paid directly to US Lax. It is not refundable by Parker Youth Sports.
11) Are there refunds if my daughter decides not to play?
A. After your daughter is placed on a roster the refund is 50% minus a $20 admin fee. This is done early January. Teams are turned in to the CGLA January 13, 2017. Once the season starts there are no refunds. If you seek a refund prior to being placed on a roster there is a $20 admin fee that is non refundable. The late fee is not refundable.
12). When and where are practices? Can I request a practice day/time/location?
A. Practices are held Monday - Friday in the evenings. Your coach decides the day/time of practice. Practices are in Parker at a local middle school or elementary school. Practice location/day/time requests are not taken from any player. Teams can practice 2-3 times per week for 1.5-2 hours.
13). When and where are games?
A. Games are played as far North as Fort Collins and as far south as Pueblo and everywhere in between. The league (which controls the game schedule) tries to schedule each team at least 2 home games, preferably 3. There may be times when you are the "home" team and you are playing outside of Parker. Games are usually Saturday 9A-7P but can occur on Sunday or during the week if inclement weather arises.
