*This year was a tough schedule to create with MYLA and coordinating all teams schedules within the State

along with coordinating with the highschool to ensure enough refs for all weekends. That being said, we

do not have enough refs for 3/4 and 5/6 to do State this year as it is the same weekend as

highschool state. The 3/4 and 5/6 boys teams are slated to play in Idaho the weekend of State to give

them more playing time. SIGN UP TO LEARN HOW TO REF!!!! WE CAN ALWAYS USE MORE REFS.

 

**Also, LAXFest this year is at a different field then the past, so plan with that when booking hotels.

 

***If two days are listed on the schedule above, that means that there are games both Saturday and

Sunday. If only one day is listed, that will mean that games are only on Saturday.
