Under 5 to Under 9's only need a red top ...cleats are totally okay as well as it does teach them hoe to run on the ground with stubbies...but runners are totally fine as well, but feel free to get shorts and socks if you like ..
under 11's to under 19's need shorts and socks,mouth guard and cleats as you are full contact. The online store is closing for this round on April 30,2018.
Junior Druids
Online ordering for Junior Druids ends on Monday April 30th, 2018 (11:59pm CDT)

***I really need everyone to register ASAP, as we need to declare our programs for the Under 5 to Under 15 teams next week, and we need to have as close as possible declaration of teams for the schedule.

The SR program starts up very soon and also needs this information... the Under 17-19 programs won't start up to high school is done...but would love for early registrations as it so much easier for the program. (and me)

We have team snap for each program level in the JR's.. this will be set up this week and this will be the means of communication, so unless you are registered (that's the emails we are going to use.. you might miss information.)
Amanda Fex has spear headed this and is getting the teams organized... so watch your emails for invites. **For all registered players in the JR program,the TEAMSNAP has been activated.

Please always feel free to call me with any questions !!!
