Teams will practice once a week at the Holy Communion gym. The day of practice will be determined by the coach’s schedule and the gym schedule. Practices will begin mid-November for the older age groups that begin games in December and mid to late November for the younger age groups that begin games in January. Additional practices may be scheduled by the coaches on Saturdays before the games begin. Coaches will contact you about your first day of practice after registration is complete and they receive their rosters.
Games for the kindergarten league will be played on Friday evenings. Games for the other age groups will be played on Saturdays. The high school age groups may have some weeknight games as well.. The season will include 8 scheduled league games.
If you are interested in coaching a team or being an assistant coach, please volunteer on the registration form. The diocese requires a one-time background check on all coaches and coaches must attend a training session of Safeguarding God’s Children. The Safeguarding God’s Children training is good for three years. For more information, please contact Julie Fike.
