Please Read Carefully:
All of the leagues (with the exception of T-ball) will hold a tryout and will use a draft procedure to try to make teams as fair as possible. They will not honor requests from parents for players to play on a specific team in ANY league.
It will be up to coaches to determine, through the established draft procedure, what players fill their rosters. T-Ball will go through the same draft procedure without a tryout.
If a parent desires a specific coach for their child, it is up to the coach to draft that child and not the responsibility of the GPRD to place him or her on a team.
