please contact the Coach Administrator. Coach Administrator contact information
is listed on the website Regional Board tab at www.orangeayso.org.
Practice Schedules: Practices will start no earlier
than August 1st. Team practices will be set by the coach. Most teams
will practice 1 – 2 times per week for approximately 1 to 2 hours depending on
age and ability.
Game Schedules: Games for lower divisions are
scheduled on Saturday’s. Upper divisions are scheduled for Saturdays, and
possibly weeknights and Sundays. Lower U5 – U8 divisions play within our region
