On the Review Page, there is a link near the bottom to "Register Another Player" - please click on this link to ensure that all of your family's players are registered within the same order.

This registration process will be using a credit card merchant account to handle all credit card transactions.  Each credit card transaction will include a 3.5% transaction fee plus $1 per transaction.  We recommend registering all your children at once to minimize the transaction fee and limit the per transaction cost to one.

Team selection process

It is our intent to provide a fair team selection process. We will sort athletes according to gender, age, practice location ( VA, Espy, County farm, and various spots in Jackson County) and then schools according to our state rules:

1. Team Assignment Process: The member organization must use a player assignment method which creates teams in a given age/gender group approximating an equal age distribution of the total registered players in this group. Any team, whose actual assignment distribution from the upper-half of the age/gender group exceeds the organization's total distribution of the upper- half age group players by more than fifteen (15) percent, must correct the imbalance before the team may participate in MSA games.

The only special requests we will honor are the ones laid out by our state rules manual:

d. The children of the Head Coach and one Assistant Coach are the only players which are automatically assigned to the team;

e. Brothers and Sisters in the same age/gender group shall be assigned to the same team unless their parents or legal guardians request otherwise.
