We have looked into the spring practice schedules for middle school teams surrounding our area. Most programs are not starting until the week of April 29th. Due to this fact, we will be pushing back our spring practice schedule by 1 week to start Monday, April 29th through May 18th. Jamboree place and times are still to be determined at this time. 7th/8th grade parents there will be a parent meeting for Spring practice on Sunday, April 28th from 3:30 - 4:30 pm. Please plan to attend this meeting. It will be held in the fieldhouse.

Registration is still open for those who have not registered for the upcoming season. You must be registered to participate.
