Fall Ball Recap:

By Jeremy Laughlin 10/05/2021, 10:15am CDT

Well, that was quick… our first official Fall Ball season is over. We had a lot of fun scrimmaging, playing games and refining skills. It was exciting to see both experienced and new players come together and give this program a try. On week 3, players wore gold sweatbands to raise awareness for Childhood Cancer, which we were honored to support. This formally concludes our on-field activities for 2021, and we are already looking forward to 2022!

Action:

  • FALL COACHES AND HELPERS, we will send you a direct email with a quick feedback survey. Please take a minute to share your feedback with us. Parents, if you have any Fall program feedback, you may reply to this email directly.
