Lou Ramos Winter Leagues

The 2019-2020 Lou Ramos Winter Leagues are Back!

An exciting, fast-paced winter league to keep your game sharp!

"The walled turf arenas at the Lou Ramos Center allow the ball to remain in play up to 95% of the game. This means more contact with the ball for the players, and a much greater opportunity to utilize dribbling, passing, and receiving techniques we stress at the younger age groups. Rather than waiting for the ball to be put back in play on a small touch-line field, players are constantly engaged in the game, and that is great fun."

  • Back-to-Back age groups or genders may be combined for optimal bracketing  (Combined 2008/2009, Boys/Girls, etc)

  • For the Middle School and High School age groups respectively, we are not restricting each group to certain birth years. However, we have the right to examine each team at those age group to ensure they are not taking advantage of this rule and playing more skillfull, older kids "down" an age group.
