Welcome to the P-O Elementary League! Here you will find information regarding team and schedule information for the 2023-2024 season.
The season will be a 8 week Game Season and run from Nov. 2023-Feb. 2024
Practices: K-1st Grade (JR High) will mostly practice and play on Sundays at the Middle School. There maybe a few practices at PE but mostly they will be at the MS.

The coaches will send out information on practice times and game times.
The games will be Live Streamed as well. You will need to buy a subscription for the NFHS System. If you already have an account with them from watching other HS Teams online, you will not need another one.
Information will be shared to all with a link for each game to share so that family members can watch there love ones play online.
There will not be a Select Team for this age group and they will not travel to play other schools or teams. This is strictly for their development and for them to have fun.
