Team Formation Guidelines
Draft OrderCoaches will draw numbers to determine the order of the draft.
Coaches Child(ren)Coaches children are defined as a coach having custodial rights for a specific child, or is an immediate relative to a specific child under one of the following conditions: (grandparent, step-parent, aunt or uncle).
Head CoachEach head coach will be allowed to place their own child on the team. This will serve as the first-round pick for this coach. If a coach has more than one child in a particular age group, each additional child will serve as another pick for this coach. (Example: Head Coach has twins. By placing both children on the team up front will serve as the first and second round picks for this coach.)
Assistant CoachesThe Head Coach may designate one (1) individual to serve as the Assistant Coach for his/her team. The Assistant Coach may place their own child on the team. This will serve as a draft pick for this team. If the Assistant Coach has more than one child, each additional child will serve as another draft pick for this team.
If a coach has no children of their own, they will be afforded the number of draft picks necessary to bring their roster up to the same number of players as all other teams. Once all coaches’ children have been placed, the draft order will be used to fill in the gaps (if they exist). Once all teams have an equal number of players, the draft order will resume with the team that drew the number one pick.
Grade PlacementOur goal is to divide the teams as equally as possible. We will use the following draft order when more than one grade/age level is involved: (Example: 3rd & 4th Grade Sport. We will draft all of the 4th grade players first and get them all placed on teams. Once all 4th graders have been placed, the team with the next pick will begin with the 3rd grade players.
Late RegistrationsThose registering to play after the teams have been drafted will be placed on teams in the order of where the draft left off. If the number of late registrations cause the team rosters to become too large, thus causing playing time issues for the children, Rahll Activity Center reserves the right to start the draft process over to allow for additional teams to be formed.
