We have the following dates set for scrimmages: March 18, March 25, and April 1, from 10:30 AM – 12 PM

The scrimmages are set up as Round Robin game play.  The teams play for 15 minutes, then they switch the teams they play against, the other teams will be from the county recreation league (e.g. Clinton Jets, Ft Washington Cannons). The players will have a have break (15 mins.) and then they play again against another team.  No one plays a full game against any team, as it is about them having fun and being exposed to different teams for short period, as well as exposing the new kids to the spirit of competition.
