I MISSED THE REGISTRATION DEADLINE!!! CAN I STILL GET MY CHILD SIGNED UP TO PLAY?
You may be able to register late but we will likely not be able to honor coach, practice, or friend request. Immediately, after registration closes you may still be able to register but you are put on a waitlist. If your age group has space, you will get an email notifying you to complete registration and pay your late fees. You will not be placed on a team until your fees are paid. After the waitlist is closed you will need to contact the correct Age Group Coordinator to see if they have any available slots come open. Occasionally, we have a late drop and may be able to get you added to a team. 

AS A COACH WHERE CAN I PRACTICE?
MCSA insurance covers practice at public parks, Heritage Park practice fields, and public schools. To practice at a school, coaches must request to do so at the school and fill out a usage request form. (Found on documents page). If any churches or subdivisions will authorize practice, we can add them to our insurance policy

I HAVE NOT HEARD FROM MY CHILD'S COACH YET. WHO SHOULD I CONTACT
Coaches should start contacting players after the coaches meeting. It can take a few days as many coaches have multiple teams. If you still have not heard from your child coach and it has been a week since the coaches meeting contact your Age Group Coordinator. They assign coaches and player and will be able to get you the quickest response. 

I AM TRYING TO REGISTER FOR THE ADULT LEAGUE DO I NEED TO ATTACH A BIRTH CERTIFICATE? 
No, but the system requires a photo be attached. Please attach a photo of the MCSA logo. 

I STILL HAVE MORE QUESTIONS WHO CAN I CONTACT?
Your best person to contact is going to be Age Group Coordinator. If your age group coordinator does not answer right away remember they are volunteers and may be working or unavailable at the time. You can also send a message to our Facebook page.
