NYS is committed to trying to achieve balanced teams and teams may be re-balanced if needed, for this purpose. As part of working to solve this challenge, be aware that NYS will make changes to rosters up to three weeks after the start of the season. Our goal is to watch each team and each league very closely and make the necessary changes to team rosters in order to ensure parity. If your child is selected for a team change, this is not "optional" and please accept this, as it is not optional. Parity will be given priority over all of other issues, which includes any special requests the division managers will endeavor to accommodate. While we understand that these decisions may not always be popular with some players, parents and teams, the consequences of unbalanced leagues are far more critical to the overall success of our association. We appreciate everyone's understanding and support of this process.
