PROGRAM DESCRIPTION: Offered only in the spring, our 6-week G12/PG program (known as "PG") is for players in grade 12 and players who graduated in the previous spring, and is open to players who live or attend(ed) school in Gloucester, Essex, Manchester, or Rockport. The program has boys' teams and girls' teams; there are two practices per week and a game on Sundays. Practice days and times are set by the coach. Games are played in Essex County Communities.
***GAMES ARE ON SUNDAYS (NOT Saturdays)
