When a town has two teans at the 5th grade level does PAL require that they be designated as A and B? We are playing in D1 with a split team, 12 can pass and catch and 11 are borderline developmental.

Divisions are used in the age groups. If you want to take a look at last year's 2012 schedules, visit this link for the details as this might help answer your questions. The format looks very much like the [lacrosse] Soccer Divisions with which you are familiar. The difference will be that we are unaware whether any results are ever recorded to rank the teams from season to season.

Not really. There are kids who are very talented , playing with and against kids who can't catch and throw. Two totally different sides of the spectrum. Neither benefits.

Here is a little info on the NCPAL structure.
Boys: 5th & 6th grade are allowed to "stack" a team . that team is to play in the "A" division. This is done by a small percentage of towns that are looking for that level of competition. All other teams in PAL must have all of there teams entered as balanced teams. These teams are placed in D1,2,3,4....... sometimes you will get a group of 3rd & 4th graders that gell and work hard on a specific "balanced " team this team will work its way into D1 with a strong core and handfull of ball droppers. Other teams will stay with 3 or 4 talented players and the rest only pick up there sticks when the team practices. This team will stay in D2 or 3 depending on how good the 3 or 4 studs are. Now that is how a town team is supposed to be set up. We all know there are towns that have tryouts and put there A team in D1 and all of the ball droppers in D 3 or 4 ..............

Girls: All NCPAL Girls teams at any age group a supposed to be balanced as described in the text above.......we all know that isn't the case with some towns but thats life....

Girls divisions in Nassau are done by the program Directors after talking with the Coaches. All you could hope everyone is honest and the teams are placed in divisions that allow them to develop not just go undefeated

Amen to that.
The "Divisions" are not similar to soccer in the PAL because PAL is not a championship program. There is no prize at the end of the season other than the girls learning and playing with the other girls within their community (In short, it is an intramural program). The "divisions" are purposely not public (unlike soccer) because of the philosophy of the PAL. The directors place the teams in divisions based on 2 factors: 1- What was the team's record the previous year 2- Is the team basically the same make up of kids from the previous year
The reason for the "divisions" is to allow teams to play competitively.. NOT to win all of their games OR to be crushed by stronger teams.

The "Rule" (aside from boy's 5 and 6) is that if there are two town teams they SHOULD BE AS CLOSE TO EQUAL ABILITY AS POSSIBLE. (Unfortunately, you are right, not every community follows this). Of course, one or two players can make one team a bit stronger or weaker. This is why PAL asks that if there are two teams they be placed in adjacent divisions (A and B, or B and C, or C and D). An "A" division team and a "C" division team clearly means that one team is stacked.

PAL is about Learning , If you want more that is why there is Travel. If you do both accept PAL for what it is a good way for boys and girls to learn the game and DEVELOP

Nassau PAL never published the girls schedule in 2012 and BOTC never received a copy from any contributors last season.

As of last year, PAL allowed towns that have 2 teams in the 5th and 6th grade to split them by ability. It took them a few years too long to approve this.
This obviously is a positive sign, that this league is showing that it can evolve somewhat. The top divisions provide excellent competition in 5th and 6th grade. The lower divisions allow kids that are not as far along in their development to get to touch the ball, and play against appropriate competition.
