Things Parents Need To Know
Players who have lost interest or are too tired to play will be asked to sit on the sideline and support their team. We ask that parents try to encourage the children to watch and support their teammates and get back into the practice/game when rested. A responsible adult for each player MUST be onsite at all times.
