2022 Recreational Fall Season

We are pleased to announce the opening of our Recreational Fall Season and the return to practices and game-play!  The DMCV Sharks program is committed to providing a safe and healthy environment for our players, coaches, and Sharks families.  Below are important details pertaining to the Recreational Fall Season.
  • Team rosters and Schedules will be posted in early August
  • In order to keep the balance between the teams we will try to have equal number of both age groups, limited number of all star players per teams, diversity of schools. We will honor friend requests but we can’t guarantee that all of the friends will be on the same team
  • The Fall Season will run for 12 weeks.
  • Fall Season practices will start the week of August 29th and the season will end on November 19th.
  • Teams will have one set practice per week, based on the volunteer coach’s preference.
  • Games will be played on Saturdays, with the exception of our Recreational Tournament (TBA).
Please keep in mind that we will remain fluid with the most current safety guidelines and protocols determined by our local and state officials, as well as US Club, our governing organization.
.

Registration starts in early April 2022 

We will need both boys and girls Division coordinators to help in creating the teams and keeping track of scores during the season. If you are interested, please email Davor Gazivoda .
