Team Formation (back to top)
Team rosters are limited to ten players per team unless a team's coach requests more players for his or her team.
Players will be notified of their team assignment via phone from the head coach. Players who have not heard from a coach should contact Red&Ed office at 734-994-2300 ext. 53225.
Participants are assigned to school teams based on their public school attendance areas. Consult our registration timeline and procedures chart for detailed registration placement information.
If two teams are formed for the same grade from the same school, coaches and Rec & Ed staff will assign players to teams in accordance with departmental guidelines to ensure equally-balanced teams.
In the case of limited space, participants may be assigned to teams with participants from different attendance areas.
It is not rare for “combo” teams, or teams with participants from two or more different schools to be formed. If your child’s school has filled its primary team roster, a combo team will be formed. Earler registrants will be placed on the primary school team.
If you have any special requests you would like us to consider, for example, to have your child assigned with a specific coach or teammate, you must fill out the Special Request question when registering online or on the registration form. We cannot honor special requests placed after the priority registration period.
You may indicate when you register if you want your child to "play up" a grade.
Charter, Parochial, Private, and Out-of-District Public Schools
Charter, parochial, private, and out-of-district public school teams can be formed if all grade requirements standards are satisfied and registration deadlines met. Registration must be open for all students that attend these schools. We require a minimum of seven players be registered for a team to be formed.
