If numbers permit, a minimum of 1 team will be offered at each grade level (3rd – 8th) for both boys and girls living in Urbandale or attending the Urbandale Community School District.  Each roster will have 8-10 players.
 
Teams will be formed based on tryout performance in an A, B, C format, with the best players being rostered on the A team and so forth for grades 6th – 8th. Grades 3rd – 5th will consist of an attempted even distribution of talent levels.  Pre-existing teams will not be maintained.
