When are practices?
Each team practices 1-2 times a week. The day of the week varies as we have to go based on gym availability. Younger kids (3rd/4th) - usually have the earlier time slots and are done by 7 at the latest. Older kids (7th/8th) - tend to have later time slots. Middle kids (5th/6th) - have a mix of early and late practices. Practices will be at our local school district gyms.
When are Games?
We play in the BDL league which sets our game schedules. We play in 5-6 weekend game days. These are either a Saturday or Sunday. Younger kids play 2 games in one day at a site. Older kids play 3 games in one day at a site. We typically know the weekends we are assigned in December, but the exact date, time and place don't come as quickly.
