6 Sundays -6 College Fields -18 college CoachesReasons for doing this:
- Sunday games allow more players to participate without conflicts
- Sundays in the fall are the day most colleges give their teams off, so there is better field and Coach availability. (with that said , there maybe Sat events if field and coach availability dictate, however, all efforts are aimed at making this a Sunday event schedule)
- Create a mix of Coaches from Div 1, Div 2, Div 3, and Junior College to blend with all skill levels and academic aspirations represented on our player roster.
