Winter-Indoor Soccer Parents – below is important information regarding the use of the MKHS facilities, player safety, and attire. At the end is another copy of the schedule we previously sent and posted on our website in case you forgot. Our division directors are now putting together teams and you will get an email from them next week with your child’s team assignment. Note we are on a tight schedule with 14 teams and over 130 players, so plan to arrive on time and, after your session is done, exit promptly.
