    • Comprised of 7-10 player teams
    • 7 vs 7, 7 minute halves, ROLLING SUBS.

    • And to make things more interesting: Enter your own team! Take charge and call up some of the old boys, and put your squad together.
    • If you don't feel like putting a team together, no worries- show up on Thanksgiving Friday and we will assemble teams of free agents or assign you to a pre-formed team.

    Looking forward to seeing all of you soon!
