Slim Sylvester League




These levels are similar in that teams play home and away games at times provided by the host team, because of that days and times of games will vary. The biggest difference between the two levels is in the rules and style of play. Recreational is focused on the development of the players only and less to little focus on winning of the games. Competitive, while STILL PART OF AN INSTRUCTIONAL LEAGUE, has rules that allow more advanced game play options and have scores kept.

The season has two sessions. The first session runs December 3 - December 16. All teams will play 4 games in that time. Scores will be recorded and any changes to divisions will be made over the holiday break. This allows teams who were placed improperly in December to be placed properly for the remainder of league play. Then the second session runs January 3rd - February 13th where all teams play 12 more games. The weeks of February 14th-18th and 21st-25th will be for make-ups. Teams play comparable opponents, some weaker and some stronger. The goal is player development NOT winning!
