Q: When are practices and games?
A: Teams will practice once a week, Monday through Friday, typically in the afternoon or evenings for about an hour. Games are generally held on Saturdays and range from the morning through late afternoon. Game schedules can be found through our league management tool, Playerspace.
Q: Where are practices and games held?
A: All practices are held near the location that hosts the program for which you registered. Some leagues may require you to travel to other YMCA of South Hampton Roads locations.
Q: How are practice times determined?
A: Practice times are scheduled by volunteer coaches and are also determined by information you provide when registering. Your volunteer coach will inform you of your child’s practice time and location about one to two weeks prior to the start of the season.
Q: How many games will we play?
A: Each team will play at least eight games during the season. If there is an odd number of teams in a division, dome divisions could have double-headers or bye weeks.
