REGISTRATION GUIDELINES - YOUTH TEAM SPORTS
TRADITIONAL team sports, defined as winter basketball, spring baseball, spring softball, fall soccer, football, and volleyball. These programs are governed by strict registration zone enforcement and residency requirements, player drafts, no pre-formed teams, and a minimum play rule for each player.
NON-TRADITIONAL sports are also offered - indoor soccer, summer basketball, fall baseball, fall softball. These programs are similar with the exception that scores and won-loss records are not kept, drafts are not conducted, pre-formed teams are allowed, and registration zones are not enforced.
These guidelines apply to both unless otherwise denoted.
1. Participants must be residents of Cumberland County.
2. Residents of the Hoke County, Harnett County, Sampson County, Robeson County, Bladen County or any other county are not eligible to register. Hope Mills residents will be eligible to register in Zone 2 if the town does not offer the same program (example: volleyball, Little League). For spring baseball and softball: due to Little League boundaries, residents of Fort Bragg register with the Town of Spring Lake.
3. The registration period will be held for 2 months for each sport.
4. Three (3) proofs of residence will be required at the time of initial registration. It is recommended that one of the proofs of residence be a school document. Proofs of residence will be required the first time a child is registered, every 2 years as the child ages, and when there is a change of address. Copies of the proofs of residence will be kept in the recreation center. See below for acceptable proofs of residence.

6. Player will not be placed on a team until their picture is captured in Rectrac.
7. Each player must have a registration form on file. Staff is to make sure the form is filled out completely - no blank areas. The parent or legal guardian of the player must complete/sign the registration form. If staff receives a registration form from a non-parent/legal guardian, staff will call the parent/legal guardian to verify that the information on the form is correct. Failure to do so will invalidate the registration.
8. (TRADITIONAL) Zones enforced: participant's physical address determines which zone they will play in.
9. (TRADITIONAL) Recreation centers will be divided into 7 registration zones.
10. (TRADITIONAL) If a participant is found to be out of zone improperly, they will be removed from that roster but permitted to play on a team in their home zone.
11. (TRADITIONAL) Drafting options for zones with multiple centers:
a. Option 1: all centers within the same zone are allowed to conduct a zone draft that includes all players registered within their zone. (this is the only option available for Little League Baseball/Softball)
b. Option 2: each center will be allowed to form their own teams if they have the minimum # of players.
c. If a center does not have enough players to form their own teams, their players will be placed into a draft with the other centers in their zone or placed on teams at another center in their zone. Unique circumstances will be addressed in writing through the lead athletic coordinator and athletic director.
12. A late registration period will be held up until the date of the player draft. $5 late fee will be charged.
13. After the player draft, late registration (on a space available basis) will last until the close of business on the day prior to the first game. $5 late fee will be charged.
14. (TRADITIONAL) New legal players will be assigned to a team using the FCPR draft.
15. (TRADITIONAL) Returning legal players who register prior to the draft will be placed on their previous team roster.
16. (TRADITIONAL) New or returning legal players that register after the draft will be placed on a team according to program needs, if a roster spot is available.
17. (TRADITIONAL) A player draft will be held if there are enough players for more than 1 team.
