Each team will have scheduled practices until they begin playing two games per week. Registration fees range from $70-$85 per player depending on age. The fee includes a jersey, shorts, socks and an end-of-season award. All who register before Jan. 15 will receive an addition $10 off per player.
All players are randomly assigned to a team based on age. Volunteer coaches are screened and trained by Fayetteville Parks and Recreation.
The program will follow health directives from the Arkansas Department of Health and the Center for Disease Control to prevent the spread of COVID-19, according to a news release. Precautions and protocols will remain in place at the discretion of Fayetteville Parks and Recreation, the release stated.
