One practice a week and one in-house game a week played on Saturdays (location TBD but likely at Sparks Elementary School). A mouthguard and goggles are required for girls and full equipment is required for boys.

UNIFORMS:  We are excited to have a new uniform design this year with no increase in cost!!  Players must order a uniform at the time of registration. The uniform charge will be posted to player’s family account when the registration fee charge is posted.

Scoop players are provided a stick and do not need any other equipment. All boys shoulder pads must meet the new NOCSAE standard.  New shoulder pads should be fine but, if you’re purchasing used equipment, make sure that the shoulder pads have the NOCSAE logo and SEI certification mark.
