The goal is that these opportunities lead to an overall enjoyment of the game for years to come. Through participation in weekly practices and games, players learn sportsmanship, how to work as a team and also build quality relationships with players and coaches in the program. The season begins in September. For kids U6-U12. Registrations taken after July 31 are subject to an additional $10.00 late fee. Fee: $50 for members; $75 non members.
