Region Realignment

Regions are fluid and flexible. They are designed to group teams together based on who teams play the most.

Even report those incidents that might happen outside of a scrimmage, but still during practice time, and in practice space. (i.e. People were horsing around between games and sustained a sprained ankle from slipping on a ball.)  Continue reading “Injury Notice”
