Coaches & Referees:
In addition to our staff, we may use volunteer parent coaches for our leagues. All coaches and staff will receive mandatory certified background checks. Coaches will find the experience personally rewarding. Games will be officiated by our Sports Instructors.
As a thank you for Coaching, our Volunteers will receive a free coach shirt, 5x7 picture, weekly practice plans, and pre-season training. Easy, Convenient, and Fun!!
There is one weather make-up date added to the end of the schedule. If we lose a weekend of games to weather, we will make them up on this date. Any additional dates lost may or may not be made up. We will do the best we can, but we cannot control the weather. Because of all of the costs built into running the leagues, we cannot provide refunds for dates missed. We will do all we can to make all the games happen.
You can register to play, access schedules, view standings, team/player statistics, review game rules, and get the latest league news at our website. The website is updated on a regular basis so please check the site often.
