Housekeeping Items

  • Make every effort to attend every practice. We understand that emergencies come up. Please contact your coach and/or Director should an emergency arise and practice time will be missed.

  • We expect maximum effort, commitment, and respect from everyone.

  • There is a zero-tolerance policy for physical abuse against a coach or officiant - You will be banned from future events.

  • Parents, do not approach a coach before or after a tournament or practice. These times can have heightened emotions resulting in an unproductive meeting.  Please wait for 24 hours before contacting the coach for a meeting.

  • No cell phones during practice or while reffing matches at tournaments. During tournaments, the club/team could be penalized, should a player be in violation of this rule.

  • Should a circumstance come up where you are unable to pay your monthly dues, contact Matt Auestad via email at to make special arrangements. Failure to notify the club director will result in sitting out on practice time and/or tournaments until the missed payment has been received.
