Once we are into the season, we will have some mid week games in addition to our Saturday games.we will do our best with scheduling, but due to the growth of our league teams will be staggered to allow each team to have adequate field space for practice .Please remember we are an all parent volunteer run league. We will need help running time clocks, keeping score, setting up and breaking down the fields at home games, running concession, etc. We can’t do it without your help!!! We also have on the registration page a fundraising option. You can pay an extra amount or decline and then participate in a league fundraiser. Those that decline the added amount at registration will be contacted at the beginning of the season with the approves fundraiser. In the past, this has been selling coupon books and finding sponsors.
