The intent of the meeting is to familiarize anyone who may be considering or looking for a sport for their children to play come spring.
Club founder Andy Ramsay will provide a general overview and field questions at the meeting.
“People are welcome to come anytime in the time period … and leave when they have the information they need,” Ramsay added.
The club, a nonprofit organization, offers opportunities for kids in grades 1-12. There are no school boundary restrictions and no cuts.
Teams include a U10 coed (non contact); U12 coed contact; U14 boys; U14 girls; and high school girls and boys (all contact).
