Staffing Shortage

Due to continued hiring challenges being faced by contracted officials organizations, schools and Parks and Recreation, league maximum capacities will continue to be impacted. Due to these reduced capacities, leagues have been filling prior to registration end dates. 

If your desired division is filled, please contact Sports Management at (757) 385-0458 to be added to a waiting list or if you have any additional questions. Register early for the best opportunity to play.
