2017 Season Information

We have set the sign up date for the upcoming season. The sign up will be held on Tuesday, October 3rd from 6:00pm – 8:00pm at the high school Great Hall, this is the same as last year – Just inside the main entrance.

The cost for this season will be $100.00. The fee will cover the warm up short / shirt and all round robin fees.

We have lots of shoes and head gear to loan so you should not have to purchase any unless you prefer to do so.

· 9 and over Tuesday and Thursday from 6-7:00pm.
