All games will begin as soon as both teams arrive, have a quick warm up, and are ready to begin play. This is typically around 3:45PM and games will usually last until around 5:00PM. Time will be adjusted for late start schools. We'd appreciate parent support in transporting your athlete to the designated school promptly.
