GRADE 4/5 DEVELOPMENT TEAM
This league is designed to enhance players' skill levels in a fun and recreational setting. Each team participates in one practice session per week, lasting for one hour, and engages in one game per week, typically on Friday nights. Players have the flexibility to register for any team based on their preferences for location, day, time, and coach, aligning with their appropriate grade level as per TCYBA Registration policies that prioritize returning players.
Players interested in the Development level are not required to attend evaluation sessions. However, it is important to note that new players must play at their grade level and are not allowed to play in higher-grade levels. For example, new grade 4 players must participate in the 3/4 level and cannot play in the 4/5 level. This policy ensures fair competition and appropriate skill development among players of similar age and ability.
The TCYBA depends on parent volunteers to coach teams within the league. In the grade 4/5 division, each team will require a minimum of 2 parents who can contribute to the academy sessions initially and eventually take on the responsibilities of team coaching in the new year. If you are interested and available to volunteer in this role, please visit our coaching page. Your involvement as a parent coach is greatly appreciated and plays a vital role in the success of the league.
