Youth Sports Registration & Team Selection Guidelines
With the continual growth of our youth sports programs, the City of Fort Lupton is concerned with keeping youth sports fair. To make all teams as close to equal as possible, we have established a number of guidelines that will be followed in the upcoming sports seasons.
1. It is the mission of the Fort Lupton Recreation Center to provide programs for all youth of Fort Lupton to enjoy regardless of race, religion, gender, socioeconomic status, or any other factors as a service to the community.
2. Registrations will be accepted during operation hours and during designated dates listed.
3. Participants must complete a registration form and pay the registration fee.
a. Early Bird registration – this group will receive an early bird discount and will begin after priority registration ends.
b. Normal Registration – will pay normal fee; all participants MUST be registered before the deadline.
c. Late Registrations will be placed on the wait list and placed on teams on an as needed basis.
4. Players will randomly be placed on teams based on age. All attempts will be made to put an equal number of ages on each team.
5. Immediate family members will be placed on the same team, however, they must participate in the same league (and age division), and it must be clearly noted on their registration packets.
6. Coaches child(ren) will be placed on their team. Coaching staffs (Head & Assistant Coaches) are only guaranteed 3 roster spots for their children.
7. No requests by participants for a coach, practice time or another player request will be honored.
