(See the draft game schedule at the bottom of this page.  Plase note that this is not a final schedule.) As usual, only the first 54 players to sign up will be guaranteed roster spots (6 teams of 9 players each).  After that, we will add teams for each additional 9 players who sign up.  Captains will be picking teams on June 11th.  No practices. High school kids will be coaching the teams much like they did in the winter rec program. All players must play at least half the game.
