There will be an end-of-season awards party with appropriate awards being presented at this time. We encourage all participants to attend.
IMPORTANT TO NOTE
A very important aspect of the program is sticking to the schedules. If your child does not show up to a scheduled match, it leaves another player in limbo. Please be considerate of others' time and please also help your child by being punctual and dependable when they are scheduled to play.
