​Cost per player – TBD.  This fee is determined based on the number of teams continuing to play and what tournaments are available during the off season. Typically teams continuing in spring have 1-2 practices per week and play in 2-3 tournaments.  Additionally, we typically offer another weekly training opportunity in the spring for a separate fee.
