Only 1st, 2nd place teams in 7th and above will receive trophies.
  • Individual Registration:  Individual registration fees include a half court practice. Individuals may not make any practice requests. Coaches make requests for day, time and location of practices.  Coaches requests are unknown when teams are formed therefore it is not possible to match up individuals with teams based on practices.
  • Uniforms are not included in the registration fee.
  • Returning Team Players should contact their coach before registering.This will prevent paying the wrong amount or duplicate payments.
  • Individuals requesting a particular division will not be granted due to the space available on teams.  When all existing teams are full then new teams are formed.
  • Individual players may only play on one team per grade (McKinney, Murphy, Plano). They may play in the grade they are currently in and up a grade, but not on two teams in the same grade.  Does not matter if the teams are in different divisions or locations.

Your team will be an “open” team when your roster is under 10 players with a balance for individual players with no team, will be allowed to join your team. When your team is paid in full it will be “closed”. We will try to fill all rosters to 10 players when players are available.  We cannot guarantee to have players available.

Requesting Practice Times

Coaches put their requests for day, time and location into our coaches tool and are assigned practices through our automated practice tool.  Generally our youngest teams practice at our earliest times.  We start assigning teams at 6pm and the last practices start at 9pm.  Teams that want to practice earlier than 6pm usually get their request no matter what their grade. Practice schedule will be posted Nov. 6 (tentative)

Filling Rosters

PSA does add players to the teams that are practicing with us as needed.  We fill teams up to 10 only, unless we receive a special request by a coach for more.  If teams pay the full team fee we do not add to their teams.  All teams must be paid in full or ask PSA to fill the team in order to be put on the game schedule.  Teams that do not want PSA to add players are responsible for the total team fee.

When registration is over, all unpaid players will be removed from teams that we are adding players to, before adding the new players to the team.  No players may be unpaid on a team unless the team fee is paid in full by the coach.
