These are the good people who make sure we have space on a pitch to practice, teams to play against, money to subsidize our travel, paperwork filed to retain our nonprofit status, and so much more. Running for the executive board and voting in the annual elections is a privilege open to any current player or official supporter. The 2023 - 2024 executive board is working hard to continue to push this team to its strongest potential on and off the pitch. If you have any questions please feel free to e-mail any of our executive board members.
