Tiny Tykes (2017-2018)

  • Children born in or before 2016 are eligible to play in our intramural program. You can register for the intramural program here.
  • Children born in 2017 or 2018 are eligible to participate in the Tiny Tykes program. You can register for Tiny Tykes here.
  • Tiny Tykes need to be registered per season (while intramural players are signed up for the entire year), so if your child signed up for the fall season of Tiny Tykes and you want your child to participate in the spring season of Tiny Tykes, you will need to register separately for the spring season of Tiny Tikes.
