We are currently working on collecting donations of cement block to build dugouts for these two smaller fields.

Q: Can my two daughters be on the same team?
A: Yes, as long as they qualify for the same division (age group).
Q: Can we get my daughter's friend on the same team for
A: The teams are formed by a draft process to ensure fair and equal placement of players among teams. Because of this process, we cannot guarantee her friend will be on the same team. The only exception is in the 4U and 6U division where we will group the girls with their classmates/friends to make it a more enjoyable experience for them as long as there is room on the team.
