How do I register my child?

  • You can now register online by clicking on "registration" at the top of this page. There, you can register, make a deposit payment, pay in full, or start a payment plan. You can also upload required paperwork if that is more convenient than providing a hard copy.
    (Note: A full refund will be given if the season is canceled due to the COVID-19 situation.)
  • We follow a "first come, first served" rule, so it is best to register as soon as possible. Once our teams are full, we close the registration for that squad. We do have official registration dates, and will post them on this web site. But it is very strongly suggested that, if you are interested, it is best to contact us now. We can send you the forms as well as answer any and all of your questions. You can call 585-210-0755. Your call or text will be returned within 24 hours.
