2nd GRADE DIVISION:  The 2nd grade division begins Saturday, December 3rd.  This division is different from all the others, as each team session is held only on Saturdays for 1 hour in the morning at the Ocean Acres School Gym.  The sessions begin at either 8:30am or 9:30am.  There will be 8 teams this season.  There are 2 gyms being used each hour, and 2 teams sharing each gym.  Therefore, 4 team sessions will be held each hour if we have 8 teams.  The first few weeks are 1 hour practices, which can turn into a half hour practice/half hour scrimmage (if both head coaches sharing the gym are interested in doing so by week 2).  Games begin after the New Year, but no score is kept - only a clock.  A referee will be assigned to each game.  Team shirts are distributed for the first game after the New Year.  Season ends Saturday, February 18th.
