Registration & Placement
Placement and Registration of Athletes
Registration procedures should be the same as those used for regular league teams.
- Registration form should include a section for medical history.
- Athletes with Down-syndrome should be required to have a current x-ray. If the x-ray is positive, for their safety, it should be strongly recommended that they do not take part in team play.
- In some cases medical waivers may be required.
Placement is made by ability, not age.
Assessment tests should be made available upon request.
Ensure that the experience is meaningful for the participating athletes, and one in which they feel they have made a contribution.
