Start Dates for 2015 season

Welcome to the 2015 season!!

We will have a slight change in start days this year. 

Most of the RPW program (football and cheering) will be starting on 8/3/15 with the following exception.

All Mitey-Mites (E level players) will start one week later on 8/10/15. This will effect all 7 year olds and some of the 8 and 9 year olds (both football and cheering). We will be giving out tentative team placements in early July but you can contact us if you are unsure at what level your participant may fall.
