New team status shall only last for one year.

Here’s your friendly reminder to attend the end of season AGM meeting. We will be voting on an important issue – whether on not to allow additional under 30 players on a an Over 30 Team. If you attend, your vote counts. Also, team fees will be reduced by $25 dollars for each player attending (up to two players maximum). We will also be continuing discussion on how to grow our league and how to secure additional fields in Vancouver.

We have not yet been able to reserve our typical room at the Woodland Middle School so I will email as soon as we determine a location.
