We recommend mixed teams of 10 people. Each team requires at least 4 females and a minimum group of 9, but the preferred mix is 5 females and 5 males.
Each team has 3 males and 3 females (or juniors under 14 at the start of the competition) on the field at once. You need to be 9 years old to play on Wednesday nights and 12 years old to play on Monday nights. In winter, you just need to be 9 years old to play.
Juniors aged 9-13 and adults over 60 years old count towards the 'female' requirement of 3 females on the field at once.
