This is a developmental league for younger, new players and for players who need to acquire more skills before they are ready to play at the next level. It is primarily for U9 age boys. Some U11 boys are allowed to play if they are not placed on a U11 NCJLA team after player evaluation night. In the Boys City League, the focus is on fun. All games and practices are held during the week (M-F). Occasionally, optional practices are held on Sunday evenings.
Practices will start in late February. While it is obviously in the players’ best interests to participate in as many practices as possible, coaches understand that some players will occasionally have other commitments. The team will practice twice per week until the season begins, and once per week during the season.
After a few weeks of practices, the boys are placed on City League teams.
Games will be held on Fridays (late afternoons/early evenings) starting in early to mid-March. There are no games during Spring Break (EUSD schools). The season will end before Memorial Day Weekend in May. All games will be played locally, either in Granite Bay or El Dorado Hills.
This program is compatible with other spring sports, such as baseball. Many players are able to participate in both sports during the spring.
