U17 & U18 Information for 2022-2023 Season
We are thrilled to announce that we will again be offering a U-17 club opportunity to local players looking to prepare for the higher levels of High School and playing collegiately. Depending on interest, we would also consider doing a combined 17s/18s team for those High School seniors attempting to play in college, since both levels are varsity/college level of play.
