REGISTRATION

STEP 1: PLAYER INFORMATION FORM (PIF)

The Player Information Form (PIF) gives your coach important information about you and your daughter, including uniform sizing, teammate requests, and other key information to facilitate IGLA communication. The PIF also includes the IGLA waiver which must be accepted in order to complete the registration and participate in the program. Registration with IGLA via the PIF is required for all players participating in any IGLA program.

Please note, an IGLA pinny is required to be worn at all games. If the player has an IGLA pinny from a past season, she may wear that pinny for subsequent seasons. If the player requires a new pinny, they are available for purchase through the IGLA PIF for $20. Complete pinny payment online or by mailing in a check.

To register your daughter to play in IGLA’s Pink League (Pink League is for all players regardless of experience), please click HERE. If your daughter has experience and would like to participate in IGLA’s Purple League (for experienced players), please click here to register for a skills assessment. If your daughter has played Purple in 2018, she is automatically waived from an assessment and you may register her at any time. Purple League registration links were sent via email; if your daughter played Purple in 2018 and you have not received the registration link, please email Jennifer Devens at jennifer@iglax.org.
