Important information:

  • Due to our small class sizes, it is sometimes necessary to combine grade levels in an effort to comply with league standards, and play expectations.

  • New to the 2018-2019 Season for 7th & 8th Grade Girls (7th Grade Boys are not affected by this change):
    – The league has decided to combine the 7th and 8th grade girls in the MP/WES/PV Monday Night League (playing together as one team).
    – If there are enough 7th & 8th grade girls to field two teams, we will disperse the athletes into two 7/8th grade girls teams.
