The ages 4-5 division will be held on Thursday evenings. One-hour practices are scheduled Jan. 11 and 18. Half-hour practices and half-hour games will be held Jan. 25 through Feb. 29.

The ages 6-7 and 8-10 divisions will begin weekly practices the week of Jan. 8, and games will be Saturday mornings from Jan. 27 through March 9. There will be no games on Feb. 17.
