MATCHES

Matches (6) will be held on Sunday afternoons beginning April 28th.   Exact match times will be posted the evening prior by the coaching staff.  We ask all parents to RSVP to each match date well ahead of time so we the coaches can provide an exact time for your son/daughter to tee off.  This will eliminate needless waiting around and allow your family to schedule accordingly.
