Placement for RAGE 2019-20 competitive teams at all age groups will take place in April and May. PRE-REGISTRATION FOR PLACEMENT IS REQUIRED. All programs have multiple sessions as part of their placement process. Players should plan to attend ALL scheduled sessions in order to receive proper evaluation and placement. Registering for and attending the RAGE placement session implies interest and readiness to commit the time and financial resources necessary for an entire season, including accepting a position on the team by completing the Club Registration process and making an initial payment within 24 hours of being offered a spot.

Once a player makes a team these monies will automatically be applied toward the $265 RAGE Competitive Registration fee. For players who are not placed on a competitive team, monies ($100) can be transferred to RAGE Recreational Program Registration.
