About the Recreational Program
The recreational program provides an option for the U12 & U13 age groups who would like to continue to play the game recreationally. Players born in 2011 and 2010 are eligible to enroll in the recreation division. The recreational division provides a fun and non-competitive environment to foster continued enjoyment of the game. Participants can and should sign up for other developmental programs offered throughout the year such as camps and clinics if they would like to try out to join a club team and play the game in a more competitive environment in the future.
