Each season, players will play in multiple festivals, tournaments, and friendly matches with other competitive level teams. Game schedules will vary, but you should expect 1-3 soccer weekend events per month. Your specific group schedule will be emailed at the beginning of the season. The director will schedule all matches for each team.
