FOMC will be having a leaf raking fundraiser this fall. Athletes will be expected to participate. More details to come.
Team size may be limited by our equipment and coaching resources, and safety consideration.
The first two weeks of practice in each season will serve as a try-out period. Any participant who is unable to continue in the program due to these restrictions after the try-out period will be refunded.
