Saturday, January 20

Parents of new players must bring birth certificates to Welles Park Fieldhouse-lower level from 11am-2pm.  You will learn at that time whether your child has received a spot in the league (most will) or will be wait listed.  You should expect to be in and out in less than 15 minutes.  

If you do not appear on Saturday, January 20, your child will be removed from our database. 

*Kids pre-registered online in our Major (11-12 yrs. old), Senior (13-14 yrs. old) and Liberty (15-18 yrs. old) have a good chance of getting a spot, however, you must still come in on January 20 with a birth certificate.

All requests to play up or down in a league outside our age rules must be made in person at this time also.

Q&A session with WPPA board members also takes place at this time.

Tuesday, January 23 Parents of children who receive a spot on Saturday, January 20 must complete registration online and pay no later Tuesday, January 23. Failure to timely pay online will result in the spot given to another child on the wait list.
Wednesday, January 24 We will begin notifying wait listed kids by email if a spot is available or where they stand on the wait list.
