Regular season will be followed by a single elimination playoff. Girls will play on Mondays and Wednesdays, Boys will play on Thursdays and Fridays. Teams do not have to be school teams, but first preference will go to school groups. We will adhere to current COVID regulations. There will be no limit on spectators during this league.
