Once we determine we have enough teams, online registration will open for your team players to register. When they register they will need to select your team. Online registration will take place April 28 through May 18
Want to play but don’t have a team? Once registration opens, choose “single” as your team and we will place you on an existing team or if there are enough singles then we can create an additional team, however, the team will need to have a coach.
