FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Can a player play on both their school and their club team?

There are no exceptions to this rule. Note that school leagues are not included in the one player/one team city rule. So it is possible to register in, for example, BCL, NCS, CIF or CYO leagues as well as one of the leagues listed above.
