Q: Where and when are the practices held?
A: SINCE we do play a lot of games and some of the players also play on a second team and the weather in the spring can be iffy and school is still going on and most parents work during the week, we try to limit practices to a limited number of days. Our practices are scheduled to enhance and fine tune the game/tournament performances.
Our practice field is located at 19051 S. Halsted in Glenwood, Il.
