Coaches will select when their team practices based on available open practice slots. Our fields have to accommodate usage from a large number of teams across several age groups. We do not assign practice slots or develop game schedules until registration is complete. With seasonal variance in registrations, the final number of teams needing to be scheduled in each division is not known until our final registration numbers are in.
Once games start, teams lose their weeknight practice slot as games are held on weeknights. Games and practices can be held on any weeknight and game nights may vary from week to week.
