Player

Where can I find the schedule, roster and teammate’s contact info? All of this and more is available in the Dash Portal (scroll down to the last section for more information on Dash). *Note that schedules are liable to change, you should always double-check in Dash before you head to a game.

Do I need to sign a waiver? Yes, all participants need an active waiver on file. Login to Dash to sign a waiver online or fill one out in person as well.

The waiver did not pop-up when I signed in? This means we have an active waiver for you on file.

Who is my main point of contact? Your coach, all coaches are in direct contact with the Football Director.

My child can’t play anymore, can I receive a refund? You can’t receive a refund after the first game has been played.

Do I need a Membership? Yes, all players are required to have an active membership that extends until the end of the season (ex. If you have a membership that ends in 4 weeks, but there are 10 weeks left in your season, you need to renew your membership before the league starts). Memberships stay active for 365 days. *Note: The membership fee is due in addition to the Team Fee.

How do I request to join a team? In Dash, Click on “Registration”, then “Teams & Leagues” then “Join a Team”

I have more than one friend request, can we be on the same team? We accept one MUTUAL friend request. If you have more than 3-4 players that want to play together, we recommend forming a private team.

What is the Waitlist? When forming house teams we will create as many teams as we can, with 10 players on each team. We will do this “first come, first served”, and those that did “not make the house teams” will be put on a waitlist to potentially take the place of anyone that drops from a house team.

I may be on two teams, how do you change that? If you registered individually, and then joined a private team you are likely still listed on the house team as well. Please let Athletico Center know if this is the case immediately (when this happens, you are holding a spot that someone on the waitlist could claim).

Team

What is the “Preseason”? Based on coach and parent feedback, we block off the first 20 minutes of your regularly scheduled Week 1 game to practice and get organized as a team. This applies to all ages, however, if BOTH team’s coaches would like to forego their practice time, teams are allowed to play each other for the full 40 minutes.

What is the maximum roster size? There is not an official “max number”. However, to ensure equal playing time, we suggest 10 players per team, and no more than 12.

Can we reschedule a game? We do not reschedule games. Every team in a given week is bound by the limited space and time we have. Hence, abiding even one team’s “reschedule request” would cause a snowball effect that could change every other team’s schedule for that week.

Is a practice day included? No, practices are not included with the league.

Will Jerseys be issued? Yes. Each team is provided with 10 shirts at the start of the season. 15 minutes before the week 1 game, coaches can pick up their shirt packet at the front desk, and players can get their shirts from their coach.

Games

Can my son or daughter wear cleats? Yes, Players are allowed to wear cleats as long as they are not metal, screw ins or square. Gym shoes are also allowed,

What should my child bring with them to games? 

  • Team shirt

  • Water bottle

  • Cleats/gym shoes

  • Mouthpiece/gloves if they wish.

Do we need to bring flags/ball? No, we provide 10 flags per team and the appropriate ball for age.

Are there referees at the games? Yes. One Referee and Assistant Referee will ensure we have a fun and fair game.

Coach

Are we provided with a coach? Teams are responsible for finding their own coaches.

What are the responsibilities of the coach? The coach serves as the administrative lead for a team, as well as, any on-field duties (evening up playing time, calling plays etc). Administrative responsibilities include ensuring:

  • All players have signed a waiver and have an active membership

  • There is not a team fee balance

  • Players know the schedule/when to show up.

Can I get my team deposit refunded? Dash views fees on a team basis, not individual. This means that coaches should request direct, offline payment from the last players on the team with an outstanding balance.

Baseball League

Stay tuned for 2020 Spring Dates!

Our goal is to give players 4-7 years old a great place to develop their baseball skill set and learn how to play the game through fast paced games and practices.

The fall session will go from Thursday, September 5th – Monday, October 28th.  Games will be on Thursdays and practices will be on Mondays. Each player will receive a shirt and a hat.  Professional coaches and instructors teach the future stars of the game in a fast paced environment. Practice groups/teams will be divided by ages 4-5 and 6-7.

Stay tuned for Spring 2020 Info!

Age Groups: 

  • Ages 4-5
  • Ages 6-7

Game Length:

  • 60 Minute Games

Formation & Field Size:

  • Ages 4-5: 5v5 (T-ball)
  • Ages 6-7: 5v5 (Machine-Pitch)
  • Why 5 v 5? Less standing around!  More action! All players will be able to play the infield.  Shorter fields, means more chances for Home Runs. Who doesn’t want to hit a Home Run?!?!  Less time between at bats means more at bats and less sitting on the bench. ACTION is the best way to develop skills! REPETITION is the best way to learn the rules!
