2015 season will feature LEVEL 4 Expanded Rules for older leagues
Beginning this year, players in grades 5-8 will played under new “Expanded Rules.” These rules are designed to help our older players improve their ability as well as their understanding of the game. Expanded rules will include zone and man defense; overtimes and timeouts; league standings; and an end of season tournament! We are looking forward to implementing these new rules and believe they are going to ratchet up the level of competition and bring a new level of excitement to our league!
