We are forming a new U11 Girls team.
They will compete in the prestigious New England Premiership (NEP) for the Spring 2014 season.
We have a pool of interested players and we encourage all girls, born after July 31, 2002,
to take advantage of this opportunity to experience high level coaching and competitive play.
