Rosters for SVAA teams are formed by the grade level League President volunteer. They are based on player's grade, school the player attends, and space availability. Returning 6th grade players will be assigned to their past season roster, unless they have indicated otherwise. They will be placed on another team at the League President's discretion. Recruitment for specific teams by coaches or parents is strictly prohibited. Requests by new players for a specific team will be considered but is not guaranteed.
Private school players will be placed on teams according to the school they would normally attend if they attended a RISD school unless there are sufficient players to form a separate team from that private school or a nucleus from such school.
