Teams will play two games each week during the season. Weekday games are held Tuesday-Friday and will start at 5:30, 6:30 or 7:30 p.m. (older age groups typically start later).
Weekend games will start at 8:00 a.m. on Saturdays with the last games starting at noon.
Practice sessions during the season are at the discretion of the coach.
