Update, 12/29/2015.  Just got back from watching the Wild spank the Wings in St. Paul.

Please consider volunteering if your team is not represented.  These teams need a website rep:

  • Squirts:  MQT La Dolce
  • Bantams: Cal Pat's
  • Midgets: Calumet, Escanaba
  • Girls:  Manistique

It's all explained at the "Website Instructions" link at the left.


Need a computer-savvy volunteer from each team

11/18/2015, 12:30pm EST
By Walt Milligan

This website and league will not work without a volunteer from each team who enters game scores.  CUP League policy is that each team must have a website representative to enter the scores. 

It is not fair to anyone that game results are not reported, and it makes the standings worthless.

Please consider volunteering.  We currently have representatives for 17 teams, only 1/3 of the total.  Click to check this document to see if your team already has a rep.  If they don't, check the link at left called "website instructions".  It's not that hard.  If your team has a rep and scores are not being reported, please discuss it with the rep or your coach. 

Note:  The website rep can even be a player at bantam age or higher.  It could also be a parent, team manager, or coach.  It can be anyone who knows the scores of the games and is associated with the team.
