The cost of registration is $20/player and every player gets a prize!! Contact your team manager or Kevin Rieberger (kjrieberger@shaw.ca) to register your team! Please register by April 15.
Mini Tyke and Tyke players will participate in a mini-tournament in between division events.
We are proud to welcome Thrifty Foods as our Tournament Sponsor this year, and gratefully acknowledge the support of Kirby’s Source for Sports, and the Junior A and Senior A Victoria Shamrocks.
