SPECIAL REQUESTS: We are a volunteer run league with a small core group of leaders and organizers who manage hundreds of players.

All age-division teams practice together on the same night on adjoining fields which should help with car pooling.

River City Sportsplex (13030 Genito Rd, Midlothian, VA 23112)

FIELDS:

1, 2, & 3

DATES & TIMES:

K/1/2: Monday, August 23rd, 6-7:30p

HS: Thursday, August 26th, 7:30-9p

CHECK-IN: 

I will be located at the north intersection of fields 3 & 2. Please check-in with me before heading to the fields. If you have not yet paid, you will need to bring a check and/or pay via Venmo on-site.

COACHES, TEAMS, EVALS: 

Players will not be assigned a team or coach until after the first week of practices in which evaluations occur. We attempt to create parity among our teams and divide up as evenly as possibly by skillset.

UNIFORMS & EQUIPMENT:

Uniforms will not arrive until a few days prior to the first games on 9/11. However, all players must have (and use) all equipment starting from day one - don't forget your mouthguards!

WATER BOTTLES:

Boys may want to consider finding a water bottle with a long straw that they can utilize while still wearing their helmets. Taking helmets off and on can take up valuable practice time, especially for the younger guys.
