The Junior Team is composed of two teams:

  1. Middle School (MS) Team – The team is open to grades 5th through 8th .
    1. Families of 5th grade athletes need to discuss with head coach before signing up.
  2. High School (HS) Team – Includes grades 9th through 12th.

Both programs start in October when the team begins “dryland” practices 3 to 5 days a week and transition to snow in December.  Fall sport athletes join following their school season.
