Good afternoon everyone,

Please take a second to check your game schedule. We've had to make some minor schedule adjustments. Some of these changes may not have affected your team. Please review your team's schedule and make sure you're aware of the game times and locations.

Also Coaches, EACH TEAM will be asked to provide ONE scorekeeper! That person will be assigned by the coach at check-in and not be charged admission, But that person will need to keep score for all games with that associated team. There is to be NO harrassment of scorekeepers! There will be one from each team so they will be able to double check each other to ensure it is a fair process, one does the scoresheet, the other does scoreclock.

Thank you for your cooperation
