Read First: We are super excited to present our teams for the 2019 Club Season. Every team should be very competitive at their level. There have been a lot of moving parts trying to establish the teams and schedules for our 15 and up teams and little time to get it all set. I appreciate your patience.
Every name should be listed. Some players might be listed on a team outside of their age group. The region makes exceptions and this is allowed. If you do not see your name please contact me.
We have to go through the process to allow for players to accept or decline before final teams are set. Please inform all parties of your decision asap. You have until Monday at 6pm. Team movement is possible until the final teams are established. A tab is located at the bottom of the announcement page to click to accept or decline.
We look forward to a great season. If you have any questions please call me on Sunday at 843-283-5320.
