Game times- Parents, it is extremely important that you help our cause by getting your players to the game in time.

It helps the individual player to warm up and become familiar with the opposing team and it helps the team by allowing us to be organized with an official roster ready to go at game time.

Please get to the game at least a half hour before game time.

It is highly recommended to warm up before each game so it is extremely important for the players to get their early.

Thanks for your help.

Le ayuda al jugador individual para poder calentar, y aclimatarse al equipo opuesto. Tambien le ayuda al equipo en manera de que estamos organizados con una tabla de jugadores official al comienzo del encuentro.
