We are planning ahead for our last day (Championship & Trophy Day). Heavy rain is predicted so we are CANCELING our program on Sat, Aug 12, 2017, to protect the trophies that will be delivered to the park.
We will resume the next day on Sun, Aug 13th. Refer to the “2017 Summer Program” section below to download the Game Schedule for championship game times.
All players MUST make every effort to attend to pick up his/her trophy.
Remember EVERY PARTICIPANT receives a trophy.
ALL RAFFLES (sold or unsold) must be returned by 10 am or your child will not receive his/her trophy.
Players are required to wear his/her uniform for pictures.
Make sure to always check this homepage of this website for any updates.
You may also call Coach Skip’s Cell to LISTEN to his voicemail (instead of texting) for weather updates @ 917.853.5823.
Thank you for your cooperation.
