What about the summer schedule?
July is our Summer Break! There are no formal on-field events during that month.  We appreciate that some families travel in the month of August, we just ask that you remember this can be a critical time in team development and athlete learning, so please try to attend as many practices as possible. If you are unable to attend, please ensure your Coach is informed. 

Do you play in the rain?
Yes! Football is played in any and all kinds of weather. There are a few exceptions to this...lightening, city field closures, and more recently poor air quality due to smoke.
