 +=== When is the deadline to register? ===
 +The last day for guaranteed team placement is July 18th for Fall, February 1st for Spring. ​ For older players we recommend registering early, because if there are not enough coaches priority is given by registration date (after volunteering families.) ​ However if there is room, we do accept registrations up until the beginning of the season.
