Practice time is generally 6pm to 8pm during this time. Once school begins, practice will be held Tues, Wed, Thurs. time will remain the same until otherwise notified.
Attendance is mandatory for all practices. When players miss practice it can effect the whole team. This is at least a three month commitment. Any missed practices should be discussed with the Head Coach.

When is equipment hand-out?
Equipment hand-out will be in late July. You will receive email notification and details will be posted on the web site.
Do I have to work the concession stand?
The concession stand is a tremendous asset to the organziation. Every parent should volunteer a few shifts during the season. Some volunteers will be needed during regular practice and others will be on game day. When volunteering your time at the concession stand usually it will be the game before or after your child's game. It is important that we get to see our children play and perform. With only 3 games please stay and help out the organization.
How can I volunteer?
There are many opportunities for people to volunteer their time. We are looking for people to help in the consession stand, announce games, work the sticks, maintain equipment, maintain the field, selling advertising for the program ad and a bunch of other things. If you have a talent or skill we can probably put it to good use. Sign-up sheets will be distributed during equipment handout and will also be available at the concession stand during practice.
