TO DO SO FOLLOW THESE DIRECTIONS: go to the web site, sign on, click on TEAM REGISTRATION then click on the registration number for the Fall season. When that window appears you will see the follow directions- "You can select a previous team from the drop down below and copy that team's roster to this team.
