Please indicate on your registration form if your athlete will be registering with friend(s) who want to be on the same team. Maximum 8 players per team.

Practices

Each team will have a weekly practice session on a weeknight. All athletes are REQUIRED to attend their team’s first practice. Athletes will have the choice between 1 of 2 weeknights upon registration. Please indicate which day(s) you are available for as this WILL affect your team assignment.
