Q13. I would like my child to play with a friend. Can we request to have them on the same team?

A. We will try to accommodate requests as much as possible for early-bird and regular registrations.  Late registrations will be difficult to accommodate requests.  We reserve the right to deny request when they have the possibility of impacting the competitive balance of teams.

Q14. How can I get involved?

A. Our intramural program is successful thanks to all the volunteers. We are always looking for volunteer coaches.

Q15. When are team practices?

A. Practices are determined by the volunteer coach.  Our program allows a 15 minute for training before each game for age groups 4 – 8 year olds.

Q16. Where are the games played?

A. Games are played on the Pennridge Middle School fields located at 1500 North 5th St., Perkasie, PA 18944.

Q17. When are games played?

A. Peewee (4-6) games are played Saturday mornings with games starting at 9am, 10am, or 11AM.  

For players 8-15 year old, games are played during the week from Monday to Wednesday starting at 6PM & 7PM.

Q18. What happens if a game is cancelled due to inclement weather?

A. Games will be made up as soon as possible as the schedule allows. For games played during the week, we will try to reschedule the games later the same week if possible. If the second half of a game has started and weather stops the game, that game will not be rescheduled.   For weekend games, we will either reschedule during the following week or add it to the end of the season on a weekend.

Q19 How is notification of game cancellations done?

A. We will post the information on the PYSA Facebook page: (https://www.facebook.com/groups/PennridgeYellowjackets/) on twitter: http://www.twitter.com/YellowjacketsPA and on the PYSA website. Facebook and twitter will provide the quickest updates.

Q20. The games were cancelled but the weather is clear?

A. Weather is not the only factor in determining game cancellations.  Many times fields are saturated after heavy rains that make the field unplayable.

A. Full uniforms are provided jersey, shorts and socks. Coaches will distribute uniforms to the players.

Q22. The uniform I ordered is the wrong size. Can I get a different size?

A. We will do all we can to try to help with uniform issues, but we cannot guarantee that a replacement will be provided.

Q31. I Have not received any email, What's going on?

A. There could be several reason why you are not receiving emails. Depending on the SPAM filters on your email, it might be going there since our email module uses bulk email. Also, if you unsubscribed on a previous email, that prevents out system from sending email out to you at your request. If you would like to continue to receive emails, please inform us that you would like to receive emails.
