This event is a huge hit with our players every year. Good sportsmanship and patience among parents, players, coaches and volunteers ensure that everyone has a good experience.
Also, please plan on staying for both games if at all possible. Many families are travelling a long distance to enjoy this event. If players leave early, it makes the second games difficult to manage.
