Keeper Wars Ink Clinic will be put on the day before our keeper wars event and ran by our Founder and CEO Casey Clark.  This is designed and made to gear up our keepers for the unique event they will be playing in over the weekend. 

Limit observation of youth sports (age 18 years and under) to immediate household members, and for the strict purpose of age appropriate supervision.  This includes observation of practice and competition.  Limit number of observers to ensure physical distance can be maintained, reduce potential crowding, and maintain indoor and outdoor capacity limits.

On February 14, 2018, a new federal bill, Senate Bill 534, the 'Protecting Young Victims from Sexual Abuse and Safe Sport Authorization Act', was signed into law.  This new federal law is targeted towards preventing and recognizing sexual, physical, and mental abuse, which targets youth sports players.  All associations/clubs/leagues within District VIII are impacted by this new law.  This new bill now requires a sweeping range of recognition and preventative measures, mandated by federal law, to be implemented by all District VIII members.  For information on this act, go to theSafeSport Act  page, on this site.

Feb. 19, 2021The State of California issued a new guideline for youth sports, for playing in the pandemic environment.  The revised guideline allows all outdoor sports to resume in counties where COVID-19 case rates are at or below 14 people per 100,000

Refer to the 'state guideline' for all of the items that must be adhered to. 

The ability to play will be determined by a county not having more than 14 cases, per 100,000 residents.  Not all counties may meet the requirement at any given point.  To find the case count for your county, you may go here , to see the current data.  The ability to play will also depend on your city/county rules.​

State Dept. of Public Health states that only IMMEDIATE HOUSEHOLD MEMBERS may be at game or practice, and must maintain a 6 ft distance from non-household parties
