What's the difference between A league and the AA league? Can I sign up for AA league?

The A league is hte primary league for kids. The AA league is an invite only league that kids can tryout for with coaches. If coaches and parents/kids agree, kids will be moved to the AA league. AA teams purchase their own uniforms and coaches in AA league typically play tournaments in addition to the league play, so there will be additional costs.
