If you have questions concerning what teams are in your area, what club to register with, etc, please contact the individual club that manages that AYL territory in our league. Our territories were recently aligned around high school boundaries, though the AYL is not affiliated with any high school, we try to align with the public school boundaries as much as possible. If you reside or your child attends school in a clubs boundary (including private schools that reside in that club's territory) then you should contact that club directly for registration and roster questions. The AYL is run much like the NFL, where each club is managed as a separate entity & each club manages a distinct territory in our league. There are some areas that are shared by multiple clubs, so please contact the clubs directly for more details.
