Our league is incredibly blessed with men of the utmost character and integrity when it comes to our volunteer coaches. We would not trade any of them for anyone.

The referees and/or coach isn’t calling the game according to the rules, and it’s getting out of hand, who can I talk to…?2019-05-05T17:36:29-06:00

Please understand that the league goes to great lengths in discussing game rules with coaches and referees. We do have pre-season meetings where coaches have the ability to offer-up suggestions and give feedback to help make the league even better. That being said, we do understand that the competitive nature of the game and the youth of our referees may lend itself to some situations that need to be addressed. We ask that you CALMLY find a league volunteer and/or league director to communicate your concerns. We are more than happy to intervene and correct the issue if we determine there is something that needs to be addressed.
