In-House Info

Our In-House program is for both Boys and Girls split up between 4th/5th grade or 6th/7th/8th grade. If you are playing on a travel team, you do not need to register for the In-House program

For the 4th/5th, it includes one practice during the week and one game on Saturday. For 6th/7th/8th, there are no practices just games on Saturdays.

  • We combine the grades to create a group of equally skilled, balanced teams. 
  • Following registration we run a series of skills sessions from mid-October through mid-November prior to creating the teams. 
  • For 4th/5th, there is one practice per week per team. 
  • All games are held on Saturday mornings at the Watertown Middle School. 
  • The season runs from early December through to the first week of March.
IMPORTANT NOTE:
ALL players playing on a 5th Grade travel team are also REQUIRED to play in the In House Program, no exceptions. If you sign up for a 5th Grade travel team you are automatically registered for In House and do not need to sign up.
