Last week to order shorts and turtlenecks!

Shorts and turtlenecks can still be ordered through the end of this week.  See the Practice Night Assistant in the gym for help.  Both are $15.

Referees needed!

Each Upward game requires two referees and games are played simultaneously at two sites each Saturday in January and February.  That means we need lots of officials!  Joel Wetherington is our Referee Commissioner.

Email Joel at jwether@gmail.com and/or click on the Zebra Zone tab above to find out more about how you can join this team.  Even if you only help with a couple of games on a couple of days that will be big!
