To All Coaches, Players and Parents taking part in the “2018 Spring Shootout I”
We here at Niagara District would like to take this opportunity to thank you for deciding to be a part of our event. It is our goal to make sure your experience is a positive one while taking part in the tournament.
Reminders: Coaches or Team Managers need to make sure they go over the Tournament rules before their first game.
Please be early for all games, our events normally run ahead of schedule. We tried to honor all scheduling issues. We have very little flexibility to make changes at this point, so if you still have an issue in the schedule please call to discuss it.
Again welcome to all teams and coaches and parents and good luck.
