2019 EARLY SEASON PRACTICE SCHEDULE

The regulsar season schedule will be finalized and out soon. In the interim, we have a modified early season schedule in place. Heavy snowfall and a slow melt cycle have made upvalley field availability limited, so we're adjusting in deference to those facts. First practice takes place Tuesday April 2nd (due to Spring Break). We're all going to need to be a little flexible in the early going, but we'll get back to our established pattern as quickly as possible.

Thanks and stay tuned!

A NOTE ABOUT EVALUATIONS

A good evaluation can also help teams level out the roster size. Roster depth can be crucial to the team and athletes overall experience. For example: too many kids = not enough playing time, while not enough kids = overwhelmed and frustrated athletes.

There may be an opportunity for an athlete to move up an age group if that athlete will be more successful or benefit from the move. We would also consider size for safety, and obviously skill. Considering these factors, and in the right scenario a move like this would allow us to level out roster numbers as close to our ideal size as possible. 

Thank you for your continued support and commitment to VVLC.
