RECREATIONAL LEAGUE OR PREP LEAGUE
 What is the difference? Which one is the right for us?
Prep League is only an option for Players in the 4th, 5th and 6th Grades

RECREATIONAL LEAGUE

The Recreational League is for all grades, Kindergarten to 12th. It teaches basic skills and is intended to be informative and fun. While it is mostly Eanes Eligible students, we are able to accommodate some non-Eanes students in the Recreational League. The teams are divided into divisions based on Gender and Grade. The teams practice once a week (Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday). Grades K- 6th generally play one game a week on Saturday. Grades 7th-12th generally play one game a week on Sunday afternoon. Each team’s Volunteer Coach will select the practice night and time for his/her team. There is no tryout for the Recreational League.

Each year the Divisions are determined by the number of registrations. The most common Divisions for Girls are: K/1st Grade; 2nd Grade; 3rd Grade; 4th Grade and 5th/6th Grade. The most common Divisions for the Boys are: Kindergarten; 1st Grade; 2nd Grade, 3rd Grade; 4th Grade; 5th/6th Grade; 7th/8th Grade and 9th/12th Grade.

We do not keep score for K-2nd. These teams are formed mostly by school of attendance. For Grades 3rd-8th, we do keep score and have a player draft to form teams. The Girls Divisions sometimes choose to continue forming school related teams for the 3rd Graders, however, this must be agreed on by the Coordinators and Coaches. Grades 9th-12th are player coached and teams are formed through a collaboration between the coaches and the Coordinator. The cost of the Recreational League is listed below:

REC FEES
Grades K-3rd Play 8 Games $175.00
Grades 4th-12th Play 8 Games plus Tournament $200.00



PREP LEAGUE

The Prep League is for players in the 4th; 5th and 6th Grades. It is a more competitive league and has a limited number of players. Because of the limitation, players must be Eanes Eligible Students and participate in tryouts unless granted a waiver by the league. The Prep League consists of 3 Divisions: Girls Prep; Boys Junior Prep, and Boys Senior Prep. The Girls Prep League and Boys Junior Prep Divisions consist of 6 teams with 8 players per team. The Boys Senior Prep Division consist of 8 teams with 8 players per team.

If a player wishes to play in the Prep League and is unable to attend the tryouts, he/she must notify us of the conflict in advance. Missing the tryout due to justifiable reasons does not disqualify the player from consideration; however, failure to notify us does. The Tryout consists of two parts:

Girls Prep Part 1-Skills Oct. 27, 2018     *9:00-12:00
  Part 2-Scrimmage Nov. 3, 2018      *9:00-12:00
 Boys Jr. & Sr. Prep Part 1-Skills Oct. 28, 2018      *1:00-6:00
  Part 2-Scrimmage Nov. 4, 2018     *1:00-6:00

All Prep League Tryouts will be at Hill Country Middle School unless notified of the change. *The exact time of the Skills Tryout will be posted on our homepage by October 24, 2018. Scrimmages will be approximately 15 minutes long and prospective players will be placed in small groups (10-14). The exact time each player scrimmages will be posted on our homepage by October 31, 2018.

The Girls Prep and Boys Junior Prep normally practice on Sunday afternoon and play games on Wednesday nights (2 contacts per week). The Boys Senior Prep normally practice on Sunday afternoon and play games on Monday and Thursday nights (3 contacts per week). The cost of the Prep League is listed below:

Girl Prep Play 10 Games plus Tournament $225.00
