Communication is an important part of any sports team.   Current information can be found on our Facebook and Twitter sites. The Team App is an important part of our communications.  It is highly recommended for players and parents to utilize Team App.  The coaches will be posting information for the players and parents regarding practices, games and other important items.

The weather in the spring, summer and fall often cause last minute changes to practices.  Coaches will post all changes to Team App by 12pm for HS Boys Spring, 4pm for TRY  and 3pm for HS Girls Fall.
