Need Team Website Reps!

11/15/2021, 9:30am EST
By Walt Milligan

Update, December 14:  We are up to 31 reps out of 37 teams.  Almost there!


We have 37 teams from 10U through 14U.  At this time, I have 11 volunteers to submit scores as the Team Website Representative. 

The league cannot function without these vital volunteers.

Please click the "Website Instructions" link to the left to see what is involved.  It is not very difficult if you are somewhat handy online.

Please click the "Website Team Reps" link to the left to see if your team has a rep.  If not (or if they are not entering scores), there is a link on that page where you can register.  It takes less than 5 minutes, and you will be given permission to edit your team page and enter scores shortly afterwards.

Thanks for considering this.
