Game Leader fees are $25.

Please note: "hoovering" around the goal area on goal kicks and when the keeper gets the ball is not in the spirit of long term player development.


With this being done we will be implementing the retreat line. All players must be behind center before the ball can be won. This will allow teams to make an initial pass or two out of the back while players are moving back. Once all players are back and the ball is played, they can then move ahead to win the ball. 

Please remember we ask that you do not publish scores
