2018 All-Star Game and All League Skills Competitions: Saturday July 21st, 2018.
This year we will be having an All-Star Game for players in our 10U – 18U age groups. Representatives will be chosen by team players and coaches and will play alongside other players from competing teams in their age division. This is being done to increase sportsmanship, player awareness and recognition of players who have worked hard all season and have been chosen to represent their team.
This is NOT an event designed just for those chosen as All-Stars. We will be having 2 or 3 individual skill challenges for ALL players in each division who wish to come out and show off what they have learned this season. Skills challenges will vary by division, but will be applicable to skills we hope they have mastered. There will be awards handed out to the top 3 places in each division competition. Once skills competition is over we hope everyone will stay around to cheer on their teams All-Star representatives competing in the All Star Game!
