Please don't hesitate to call Carlton with questions 678-410-1759.

These classifications are off rosters that I had at the end of 2017. If you pick up new players for the 2018 season you need to send me a new roster so that I can class your team. If you pick up more than 3 players from the class above your team then you have to start in that higher class next year unless you submit a roster and it is approved by the State Director. I believe these classifications for next year will really help the program grow and give new start up teams a chance to compete in the E division. Any team that wants to appeal must play 3 tournaments in their new class before they can appeal to be dropped. Please call or email Carlton with questions. cgriffin3423@hotmail.com or 678-410-1759.

All teams not on this list that have a team for 2018 please submit your new roster with all the players first and last name and what teams they played with in 2016 and 2017. I will then class your team and add it to the site.
