League Information (Grades 1-6)

Participants will both practice and play a game each week where they can learn the rules, develop their skills and play as a team. All levels focus on player development, having fun, and sportsmanship. This is an equal play league. All skill levels and abilities welcome and encouraged! Participants will receive a team t-shirt.

Team Formation:

Mesa Parks and Recreation is committed to providing a fair and equally balanced recreational league for all participants. In order to achieve this balance, Youth Sports has implemented the following policies:

  • Kids will be placed on a team with other participants as near to their Mesa middle school zone and elementary school as possible. Due to the complexity of forming teams including number of teams, coach locations, number of kids registered in a given area and friend requests, we try our best to place your child on a team as close to home as possible.
  • We do not allow full teams to register.
  • One friend request per participant may be submitted upon registration. Absolutely no guarantee of request or placement. No exceptions due to the high volume of requests.
  • No coach requests will be honored. No exceptions due to the high volume of requests.
  • Volunteer coaches will have their kid(s) on their team.
  • Participants must play in the league division corresponding with their current grade in school and may not participate in a grade lower or higher.
  • We are unable to switch children to a different team once teams have been formed due to the many moving parts and large amount of special requests received.
  • Some league divisions fill faster than others. Regardless of the registration deadline, once a league has reached registration capacity all additional children in that league division will be placed on a waitlist. Waitlisted kids will only be placed on a team if space opens up. Please note that Youth Sports administration has the right to make any changes to the league they feel are necessary to better benefit the program and its participants.


  • Practice time and day will be determined by the volunteer coach and information will be provided after teams are formed. Practices are based on available space, each coach's availability and the general location of team and coach.
  • Practices will begin as soon as the week of January 6 for finalized rosters with approved coaches.
  • Teams practice 1-2 times a week. However, participants are only required to attend one practice.
  • Practice is held on a different day than game day.
  • *Due to limited gym space availability, coach availability and location, and teams with various player schools, practice locations are as close to your residence as possible. We are unable to switch children to a different team due to the many moving parts and large amount of special requests we get. We are happy to help figure out carpool situations to help with getting to and from practices so please let your coach or Youth Sports know if we can help.

Score Keeping and Standings:

  • It is important to know that this league is about having fun and developing in the sport, not what the score is or wins vs. loses. With that being said, we do feel there is an age when it is appropriate to begin keeping score.
    • 1st - 2nd grade division will not keep score
    • 3rd - 4th and 5th - 6th grade divisions will keep score
  • We will not be tracking standings.
  • We ask that all participants, coaches, parents/guardians and spectators concentrate on the fundamentals and love of the game rather than the score.

Picture Day:

Saturday, February 1
  • All teams must have their team photo taken.
  • Purchasing pictures is optional. It is purely a benefit of our league.
