Fall Travel Teams for 2002 Birth Year Players

If you make a team, this will be your primary team for the Winter/Spring season. Teams will then be formed for the Fall Season (only) for the 2002 8th graders until the high school players return.

Lightning Detector Temporarily Out Of Service
The Lightning Detection System located at the Bob Lucido Fields at Covenant Park is currently nonoperational. We have purchased a new system, but it will take 6 to 8 weeks to install. Until that time, we will be adopting the Howard County policy “When thunder roars, go indoors!” at our complex.
