Fall 2020 Season Canceled


Thank you for your patience and continued support during these unprecedented times. Our board has been working to come up with a decision for the Fall season, while making sure that we keep in mind that our top priority would be the health and safety of our players, referees, families, etc.  We opened registration for 3 weeks, to give a voice to our parents and coaches.  The outcome was an extremely low response rate in registrations.  During our board meeting, we discussed many options, however, it was determined that it would be best that we cancel our Fall 2020 season until things become more stable for our children. This was not an easy decision.  We understand the importance of social activities and keeping children active, we hope that some stability in normal practices will take place over the next few months, and we can come back better than ever for a Spring season. We apologize for any inconveniences that this may have caused anyone.

In making this decision, we considered each of our children's health, safety, and our families' financial situations. We felt that we would give this pandemic an opportunity to level out as well as our financial situations to become more stable.  We will offer the returning minor league (U4-U10) players from Spring 2020 discount, when we open registration in the Spring.

It is our hope that you understand and support our position as we plan and look forward to our Spring 2021 season.

Thank you for all your continued support and stay safe.
