Can non-residents participate in YOUTH athletic programs?
Non-residents are permitted to participate in department sponsored youth athletic programs.
Can a person be a volunteer coach without having a child in the program?
Yes. Troy Recreation will assign teams to individuals without a child playing after coaches/parents are assigned teams accordingly. A background check will be performed on all volunteers involved in programs.
Can a child participate in Recreation sports and school sports at the same time?
No. A child may register and be listed on a Recreation roster while participating on the school team, but participation in both programs at the same time is a violation of MHSAA rules.
Can my child play with their friend's team?
Teams are formed based on neighborhood/school basis. Your home's location is key to where you are placed. No guarantees are made to accommodate requests.
Can a coach be requested?
No. Children are placed on teams based on school attending and neighborhood areas. There may be times when some neighborhoods/sub divisions are split or combined based on registration numbers.
How are teams formed?
Teams are based on neighborhood/school basis. Some neighborhoods may also be divided if more players register than the maximum for a team, thus two teams or more may be formed from a neighborhood. Some schools may also be combined to maximize team numbers.
How can I guarantee playing on a team with my school mates?
All youngsters that sign up by the initial registration deadline will be assigned to a team in their neighborhood/school area. Some neighborhoods may also be divided if more players register than the maximum for a team, thus two teams or more may be formed from a neighborhood. Some schools may also be combined to maximize team numbers. We do not guarantee that children will be placed on a specific team, but they will be with some school mates if they sign up by the initial deadline.
