Level 4: Week of December 14,2020; Level 1-3: Week of February 1, 2021
Practices are only one day a week for one hour
Games begin for Level 4, the second weekend of January, are one hour in length and are held in the gym at LifePointe Alliance Church. Levels 1-3, the second weekend of February. We are not a traveling league.
Practice schedules are set up based on the availability of our volunteer coaches. Once the evaluations are over, we put the practice schedule together, run the draft, and then give the rosters to the coaches who then contact their teams.
We enable our families to pick ONE night that they CANNOT practice. They put this on their child's registration form and this is then entered into our Upward software program before we run the draft. We work hard to try to accommodate our families' schedules but with over usually 165 players or more each season, it is not possible for us to handle everyone's personal schedules.
For the 2020-2021 season, Level 4 game season begins January 8 and 9, 2021, (grades 6-12) and ends February 5 and 6, 2021. Our 9th-12th grade boys' division games are held on Friday evenings. 6th-10th grade girls and 6th-8th grade boys will be held on Saturdays. For the Level 1-3, K-5th divisions, games begin February 13, 2021 and end March 13, 2021, all Saturday games.
The Game Schedule will be provided once practices are scheduled.
