Rules & Policies
VSL Board & Staff
Division 2 provides a competitive level of play, and is open to all member Clubs whose teams match this level of play. Commitment for D2 will include travel to Vermont communities that are generally within a 90-minute travel time. Training schedule is to be determined by individual Club or Coach, but VSL recommends 2 training sessions per week for teams competing in D2.
Any member Club may at their discretion place their teams in D2, with guidance from the VSL as appropriate. It is highly recommended that Clubs place teams in this division based on competitive tryouts or through assessment during winter training and play. The intent of this division it to be competitive at a level just below Division 1. Clubs should consider D2 appropriate for:
• Teams with players primarily in the older year of the 2-year bracket
• Teams developing skills and competitive experience just below the level of D1
