4v4 Practice 4/27/22. Game Rules

Posted by Jeff Stiffler on Apr 27 2022 at 03:38AM PDT

Good morning, please check the 4v4 email that I sent out last night on tonight’s practice from 630 to 8 PM please, we are hoping to finish team organization so that we can start the competitive play and want to make sure we’ve got some good balanced teams. Hope to see everyone this evening evening, have a great day.

Good evening everyone,
hope everyone is doing well. Hoping the weather continues to cry out and warm up.

I would like to have as many players that are able to make it to 4v4 practice on Wednesday at 6:30p, that would be very helpful as we finalize the teams to start competitive play.
We are planning to hand out team shirts on Wednesday and would like to balance teams to try to balance them out.
We will then have a schedule ready for Sundays start.

Please Read over the Game Rules to help your player understand them better.
