JUNIORS, INTERMEDIATES AND SENIORS DIVISIONS FINAL STANDINGS AND TOURNAMENT BRACKETS CAN BE FOUND AT THE LINKS AT THE BOTTOM OF THIS PAGE. SHOULD WE HAVE OPPORTUNITY TO RESTART THE PROGRAM BY EARLY APRIL, WE WILL ATTEMPT TO RECOVER ALL REMAINING ACADEMY SESSIONS, MITES GAMES AND OTHER DIVISIONS PLAYOFFS.  WE WILL COMMUNICATE THROUGH YOUR COACHES AND THIS WEBSITE PAGE AS THIS DEVELOPS. 

HOW IT WORKS:

Our Academy Division focuses on introducing the players to the game through fun activities that help teach fundamental ball control skills.  Players will be put in "teams" and have assigned coaches.  As the season progresses, Academy teams will play coach-supervised scrimmage games against each other, but our primary focus is on skill introduction and development..

In all our other divisions, teams will have 3 training sessions in the month of December, each session lasting for one hour.  After the holiday break, formal league play begins and we play only games.  One game per week, with the session lasting an hour.  During March, we offer a championship tournament in our Juniors and older divisions, with medals for the members of the winning team and the second place team.  In our Mites Division, we offer some special surprises on the last day of the season!
