Older age groups typically play games with surrounding military bases & recreational programs, both in Poquoson and other nearby locations.

If you would like to move a child up into an older age group this must be noted on the form at the time of registration and a special request form to do so must be completed. Children may only move up into an age division if they are at the eldest of their current age group. All registrations received after February 22 will be charged a $15 late fee and placed on a waiting list. There is no guarantee for placement on a team after the deadline or from the waiting list. To be placed on the waiting list a completed registration form and a check or credit card number must be provided. Avoid Panic!
