The site navigation utilizes arrow, enter, escape, and space bar key commands. Left and right arrows move across top level links and expand / close menus in sub levels. Up and Down arrows will open main level menus and toggle through sub tier links. Enter and space open menus and escape closes them as well. Tab will move on to the next part of the site rather than go through menu items.

Please note players will be responsible for purchasing their own uniform kit and will not be allowed to play until they have their uniform.  If a player is selected for a team, he or she will be sent a link for an online payment form for the participation fee.  Instructions will also be provided for ordering uniforms from our  partner  Financial Aid is available for those who demonstrate a compelling need.

All registrations must be completed and submitted once notification has been received in order for uniform ordering to start.
