Team practices will begin in late October, and games will be played from December through February.

Due to COVID, several precautionary measures will be taken throughout the season to protect players, coaches and officials, including but not limited to the following:

  • Players will be required to bring their own water bottles;

  • Each person, player, official, staff, spectator and coach will be required to wear a mask/face covering during all practices and games;

  • Two spectators per player will be allowed at games and practices to minimize exposure.
