About our Team

Our team plays in 4 fall tournaments, 4 winter tournaments (indoor), 8 spring tournaments each at varying levels of competition.  We practice 1 to 2 days per week during fall and spring, and 2 to 3 days per week during summer and winter.  We dormant most of December and August, and are off on the major federal holiday weekends.  We focus on learning the game in a positive environment with the goal to have each player ready for future High School tryouts.
