    For players who make the team, practices begin December 5th and we will be playing 4-5 weekend multi-day tournaments. We will have approximately 50 practice opportunities at Beckerman Athletic Center from December through the first week of May. 
    • Practice days will be Tuesday, Thursday and Sunday during December, January, and February. 
    • Practices will be Monday, Wednesday and Sunday during March and April. 
    • There will be a few exceptions to this schedule.
    • Practice times will be 6:30PM-8:15PM (8:15PM-8:30PM will be available at the end of every practice for players wanting extra instruction). 
    • It is understood that from time to time players can not attend practice. Missing a few practices during the season will NOT result in “getting benched.” 

    Our tentative tournament schedule includes the following dates:
    January 20-21, 2024 (Hartford)
    February 17-19, 2024 (Springfield, MA)
    April 20-21, 2024 (Providence, RI)
    May 4-5, 2024 (Mohegan Sun Arena)

    The cost of travel and lodging is not included in the price. The proximity of the tournaments is intended to minimize the amount of hotel expenses.
