What is the age range of players?
This varies season to season. Typically, the largest age group is between age 21-30, but women ages 17 to 70 have enjoyed playing with us! Age minimum is 17 by the first game.
Do we play on holidays?
Some. Mother’s Day and Father’s Day, yes. Independence Day, Memorial Weekend, Labor Day Weekend, no.
What do I do if I need to miss a game?
Notify your team captain AHEAD OF TIME and FIND A SUBSTITUTE for yourself. Your team needs to know of your absence as soon as possible, especially if you need some help finding a sub. There is nothing worse than showing up to your game to find you will be short players.
