Team Sport Registration Policies

The Broadview Heights Parks and Recreation Department strives to provide one of the finest recreational athletic programs in the area.

In order to maintain the quality of our athletic programs and organize teams in a timely manner, we have established the following registration policy for our team sports.


Players registering for an athletic program during the published registration period are guaranteed placement on a team for that season. Though NOT guaranteed, we will make every effort to accommodate special requests such as being placed on a team with friends.

No requests to play for a particular coach will be accepted.

Practice day conflicts will be taken into consideration for team placement if noted on the registrations form. However, it is not always possible to avoid conflicts and does not constitute a reason for a refund.

No refunds will be given after the registration period.( Note exception.)

Late Registrations

After the registration deadline, registrations will only be accepted in leagues where openings exist. Players attempting to register in a league that is closed will be placed on a wait list and called to register and pay as openings become available.

Additionally, an automatic late registration fee will be charged on all registrations that are accepted after the registration deadline. The amount of the fee will be determined by the program and the age group.

Late Registrations/Special Requests

Following the published registration deadline, NO SPECIAL REQUESTS WILL BE HONORED.

Players will be placed on teams with available spots regardless of "play with" requests.

League Changes

Players wishing to play in a league other than the one indicated by their age MUST submit a league change request form during the registration period. League changes are not guaranteed and players registering for their age appropriate league will be given priority over players requesting a league change into that league. League changes will not be approved or denied until after the registration period ends.

If your league change is approved and it is determined your child’sskill level is NOT comparable to other players in that league, he or shewill be moved to the age appropriate league prior to the season beginning

Carpooling, convenience, to play with siblings, to play with neighborhood kids or to play for a particular coach are NOT valid reasons for a league change.

If the request is denied, a refund request will be accepted providing the registration took place prior to the registration deadline.
