Questions of commitment before registering:
We have been having a few questions about commitment level for each division before people register. Below is a general idea what to expect in each division. This is all general as things can change depending on a coach and once schedules come out.
Blast ball – Mosquito (2014-2007) These levels generally have one practice a week plus one game. Games are always on Saturdays. Practices vary depending on coaches and what day they are assigned or they pick for their schedule. Practices are run Monday through Friday usually 1 -2 teams a night. These details will be finalized once registration is closed and we assign teams to coaches.
PeeWee-Midget (2006-1999) these divisions are interlocked with other associations and generally run on Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Saturdays. Teams will generally have 1-2 games a week on one of those days plus a practice. Game schedule comes from BC Minor and will be given by the end of March. Practices are determined by coaches and field availability. These teams do travel but with associations like Abbotsford, Mission and Aldergrove….they do not travel over the bridge.
