Registration forms will also be distributed at local schools.

Parents are reminded that all registrations should be submitted to the recreation office at Town Hall.

Cost is $30 per player and $15 for each additional child in the same, immediate family who participates. The season is tentatively scheduled to begin in mid-October and will run through late November.

Age divisions will be 9-10 and 11-12. Coaches, sponsors and officials for both divisions are needed and appreciated.

The 9-10 season will consist of clinic-style sessions which will include drills, an introduction to game rules and scrimmages.

The 11-12 season will consist of at least two weeks of practice and a competitive game schedule.

All sessions are tentatively scheduled to take place during the week (evenings) at the Ross Aragon Community Center.
