The 8U-Travel season starts in May and runs through June. There is a state tournament on a weekend in early July that we will participate in.
The final schedule for 8-U is still being determined and we will share that information as soon as it is finalized. For the past few years, games have taken place on Wednesdays at 6:00pm. Please note that you will have some home games in Cambridge/Isanti, but that you will also have to travel to other towns to play as well.
Teams will practice at least once a week and possibly 2 nights a week at the beginning to work with the players on skills.
Our program is always looking for volunteers to help coach, assist coach, manage teams and be safety managers. The association will do our best to help in providing training and setting you up to be successful. If you are interested in finding out more information - please say so in the registration.
