U9s are pool players and may move from team to team, i.e., ”pool play.” Jersey numbers are assigned by team. It is suggested that managers assign numbers alphabetically. Managers, please inform your players that these numbers will stay with them from year to year.

U10/U11 Teams are pool players and may move from team to team, i.e., “pool play.” Jersey numbers were assigned by teams as U9. All numbers will remain the same for returning RAGE competitive players and stay with the player throughout their RAGE career. Players new to RAGE competitive teams will choose from available numbers within your number sequence. Please follow the instructions regarding jersey number selection priority outlined below in the “U12 and above” info.
U12 and above Teams
A player’s jersey number stays with them throughout their career with RAGE. A player can request a number change and can do so at their own cost.
IMPORTANT: Team managers/team uniform coordinators will provide the specific numbers that are available ONLY after confirming with the RAGE Uniform Coordinator, Martha Brown, who has a list of specific numbers available within the age group and within that team’s sequence. If there are 2 players with/requesting the same number please refer to the following jersey number priority system:
- Returning RAGE competitive player
- Returning RAGE competitive player, but new to the age group or team
- Returning RAGE player, but new to competitive
- New to RAGE competitive player
