    (Also see the Membership tab at the top of the “Home” Page).

    Note: Player’s fees can be delayed for a couple of sessions to ensure that the child enjoys it and wishes to return on a regular basis.

    All players except those in the micro section must have a mouth guard – they will not be allowed to play without it.

    No experience is necessary although in the older sections (S1 and above) inclusion in a competitive match may be delayed until the coach feels that the child is ready to cope in these situations.
