Our league is recreational in nature, please remember that you're a role model for your team and responsible for your spectators.

New Coaches
We group our schedules by age group and gender. For example, third grade boys are all grouped together. If you don't see your team listed on the first page, scroll down, most groups have several divisions.

All Coaches
We post any revisions for the week by noon on Thursdays. Please make it routine to check the website each Thursday afternoon for any schedule updates.
