Do your homework. Your best resource is other parents. Ask neighbors, friends, relatives, etc. about where their daughter is playing or has played. Why did they select it? Are they happy with it? If you are not familiar with other GFS families involved in a rec or club sport, talk to a member of the GFS Athletics department and/or your daughter’s coach(es).
Carefully check registration dates. Many leagues fill up quickly.
