Somehow its only a week until the July 1st long weekend. Not sure how that happened but here we are.
While we don't get a chance to post much here, the standings and schedule pages certainly do get a work out, so make sure you visit there to keep up to date on all that happens in Grand Valley.
As we head towards July, here is a refresher on the year end tournaments for each division for 2017.
The 2017 season has officially started with the u16/u18 tier 1 division kicking things off this week.
The rest of our divisions start next week or at their opening weekend on May 13-14.
Good luck to all of our teams.
The schedules are posted, the map locations have been updated and the FAQ answers more questions. With the 2017 season close to beginning, we have been trying to get the website updated for you. Click around, check out the standings pages which will be updated regularly, click on a team name in the standings and get just that teams games, and don't get lost! All the diamonds used in Grand Valley should be listed on the google map link (see Locations, above) and if yours isn't there, email me the address.
Thanks and good luck to all teams this year!
