FAQ's

Do all players in all age groups require a parent/support worker
on the field?


Yes, at this point all age groups require a parent/guardian or support worker. We are not providing buddies this year.

Can my child's sibling without special needs participate as in past years?

Due to keeping numbers low we are not allowing any siblings without cognitive or physical disabilities to participate this year. We are aware that a mistake was made in the activity guide. We apologize for the confusion.

My child can not wear a mask, can they still participate?

At this point masks are not mandatory outside. Should they become mandatory outside, exceptions will be made for those unable to wear masks for safety reasons.

My child is close to the age cut off for one group, can I move them to the older group if they have played before and want to be with friends or other siblings with disabilities.


Due to small groups etc we will have to look at requests on a case-by-case basis depending on registration and space available in each group.
