Opening Day

Sign up TODAY: Volunteers Needed !!

Our Opening Day event is the ceremonial start to the season and an important fundraiser. Following a parade of teams and related festivities, there are season-opening games, a bounce house, barbecue, auctions, and much more.

Ceremonies start at 10:00 sharp. Parking will be challenging, so you’ll want to be on the field at 9:30. Coaches will communicate with their players as to where to meet.  Please be sure your player is in full uniform.
