Coaches:
Coaches are a very important part of youth ball hockey. The league takes all the administration work away from coaches so they can enjoy their time encouraging the children and acting as a positive role model. Promoting a positive environment and teaching sportsmanship, respect, and having fun are most important.

Games are played in the light rain. But games may be canceled in extreme weather such as: heavy rain,
thunder, lightning, high winds, rain with low temperatures etc. If a game is cancelled we will email the primary address.
