League Information

Thanks for an AWESOME 2017 season! 

Team Assignments: Individuals were placed on teams by the Mason City Family YMCA Sports Department. We tried to balance the teams with equal levels of skills/experience based on the data we received at the time of registration. Volunteer coaches lead each of the teams through the duration of the season. Please note that some age divisions were combined based on registration numbers.

Uniforms: Players are issued a YMCA reversible jersey. All players must wear their jersey on game days. This jersey is yours to keep after the season and can be used again in future YMCA leagues. Please contact the YMCA for any fit issues with your son/daughters jersey. 

League Rules: Please see the files below for age division specific rules.
