I'm looking for the PAL rules on how town programs are required to set up the teams. Unless I overlooked it, team creation in not in the main rule document for PAL.
Is it A/B? Where A & B talent should be evenly distributed? What happens when there are three teams? If A & B are not evenly distributed and it's more skilled players vs less skilled, does PAL require the town hold tryouts?
It's sad that our town is having serious issues with rosters, coach infighting, parents upset about fairness with the younger kids in the program, and authoritarian rule of some on the BOD for the non profit that runs it.
PAL has equal teams for 2nd,3rd and 4th grade. As of last year, they allow for A&B teams for 5th and 6th grade, if the A teams are put in "A" division.
