Tryouts / Evaluations Cancelled


Evaluations for grades 4-6th and Tryouts for grades 7-8th have been cancelled since there are currently only enough athletes registered at each grade level for one team. If we receive enough registrations for any grade, 4-8th, to warrant holding evaluations/tryouts by July 15th we will schedule a tryout/evaluation specifically for that grade(s).

Please disregard the evaluation/tryout dates mentioned within the registration forms. The Football Board will send out notifications to you should an evaluation/tryout become necessary for your son's grade.

Registration Deadline: July 15, 2017
