Of importance: Please consider volunteering to coach or assistant coach a team. With minimal practicing prior to the season and none throughout, the time commitment is less than for the younger leagues. It is our goal to maintain teams with 8 players, but to do so requires several more volunteers to coach. Reach out to the JV or Varsity league directors if you have any questions.
