Frequently Asked Questions
Game Schedule Questions:

Question: Why are all of the games scheduled in Alpine?

Answer:  Games have been moved to Alpine due to lack of  available Certified Referees.

Answer:  Games are played on the weekends because that is the only time our certified referees are available.


Registration Questions:

Question:  Why have the Registration Fees increased?

Answer:  There will not be a fundraiser this year, as requested by the parents from last season, so the fees have gone up to cover the operating cost for the upcoming season.
