    Please register by March 18 so that we can finalize teams and notify players prior to the first practice. If
        more players sign up than we have coaches, players will be assigned to a waiting list based upon receipt of
        registration forms. Last fall, Temple had a waiting list in two out of four divisions.
Coaches and Team Parents
    We have an excellent group of committed coaches and team parents; however, the league has grown each
        year, and we must add coaches and assistant coaches to ensure that every player who registers can play.
    During the Spring 2010 season, Temple fielded seventeen teams with more than 200 players total. We expect
        about five other churches to play in the league this spring.
