Players register as individuals and are placed on teams through a draft. Teams are guaranteed a minimum of six games and three practices during the season. Games are Friday evenings and Saturdays. Practice days are Thursdays (but a few practices may be held on Fridays). All of our officials are certified and all coaches receive a background check before the season. Although we always try to honor friend requests to play on same team, we cannot guarantee those requests as our first priority is to create balanced teams. However, we can usually accommodate most reasonable requests.
Here is our line-up of spring events for 2017:
FRIDAY NIGHT LIGHTS: (Grades 5-6):
