*Designated schedules will be provided for game days.
Note: The league schedule or session times may need to be adjusted due to unforeseen circumstances; participants will be notified if any changes need to be made. Schedules will be confirmed before the league starts on April 13, 2019.

Photo Day will be on Saturday May 4, 2019 and Sunday May 5, 2019. Photos will be taken at the field during the participants session.

The last day of the season is Sunday June 23, 2019.

Players will receive a league t-shirt and mouth guard at their first session. It is mandatory that players wear shin guards and mouth guards when they are participating. A player will not be allowed to participate in practices or games without wearing a mouth guard and shin guards.

Running shoes or Turf shoes are best – soccer cleats are not allowed as they damage the water-based turf. Players are encouraged to wear black shorts, and are asked to provide their own stick. If you don’t have a stick you may be able to sign one out to borrow for the season.

Looking forward to a great season.
