We will not guarantee playing time for anyone, however, our goal is to be competitive with as many girls playing as possible. We do guarantee that all girls who have been at practice will play in the tournaments. 

How many tournaments are we doing? How long is the season?

Our plan for the younger teams is to have them in 5 - 6 tournaments depending on availability.

All teams will compete in the two-day regional championship in the Seattle or South Puget Sound areas at the end of the season.
