It is very important that each family only have one account. Your family account holds all your information in one place, including parent information, child (player) information and most importantly each player's information from year to year. This history is very important as we use this information for drafting purposes. The draft is based partly on skill level evaluation done at the end of each year, which if available, is used to place players in the league and level that suits them best.
