Minis (U7 – U10)

U7 to U10s can only have twice the age group format.

If an age group has more players registered with their club and want them to participate in league and cup competitions then they must seek approval to have additional players registered to play.

The league may agree that additional players can be registered under certain circumstance, however, the rule above must be adheared to.
