For the following 7 weeks, boys will report each Saturday at 9am. They'll be in the gym for 2 hours each Saturday.
No scheduled practices during the school week, all training done before league games. Every effort will be made to honor all teammate requests - but not if request causes teams to be unbalanced. "friendship will not trump fairness"

FAQ: Who will be training my boy - coaching him?
