Middle and High School Teams
are invited to participate in a TEAM tournament on Presidents’ Day, when there is no school. Those who have more than 12 players should create another roster, to ensure that all players will enjoy a full play experience. If we do not have full teams, we will organize teams from a hat format.
This Flyer outlines the plan for the day. Please, share it with parents, teachers and players. Each team will be guaranteed three games.
All those who are helping to raise funds for travel, PLEASE BRING YOUR CANS.
We are collecting Aluminum cans as a fund raiser to support travel for players to the YCC this summer in Minnesota. President’s Day is a collection day for our fundraiser.
Ultimate! Play the Game…LIVE the Spirit!
