Group B will run from 5:30 – 6:30pm. Group A will run from 6:30 – 7:45pm. Group A is defined as those athletes that are older and can compete with the older athletes. Group B is defined as generally the younger and less experienced players. Please use your judgement as which group your son attends so that we can create a good experience for all those attending.
