Registration is open!

The registration link is on the website at

Lottery: Each girl will be automatically entered into a random draw lottery. The lottery will be run the week before the season begins. Any remaining spots switch to first come; first serve after the lottery is run. Parents will be notified whether their daughter has been added to the team or put on the waiting list by an email from the online system. If the girl was chosen from the lottery, their credit card will be charged at that time. If the girl is not chosen from the lottery, their credit card will not be charged.

Please contact me with any questions.

Thank you!!
