Roots

Program Overview

Roots is for our youngest players that want to experience the sport for the first time or continue to learn and develop. There are events for the Roots players in Fall, Winter and Spring. Each season is once a week for six weeks for 1.5 hours.

Please be sure to register your child for their grade in school for Fall 2022 - if you register for the wrong age division then we will have to refund your registration less our administrative fees.
