League Information:

 
Fair play is stressed for everyone. All players will participate in approximately half of every game. A skills assessment time is held for players age six and older to help create fair team assignments prior to the start of the season.
 
League age will be determined by their age as of February 28 of the next year (i.e., those playing in the season starting in December 2013 were assigned to a division based on their birthday as of February 28, 2014).
 
 
Awards Ceremony:  The annual Awards Program for the 2013-2014 season will be held February 23rd, at 2 pm, in the Church Sanctuary.  We hand out awards (a medal or a trophy) to all kids at this program.
