As we close out this season, big
Thank You's go out to all of our hosts this year! All of the coaches, parents, and students at our host schools did a fantastic job.It goes without saying that without willing host schools, we would not have facilities for competition - Thank you for making all of these tournaments possible.

Coaches of schools that have already volunteered to hosting a WACFL tournament in 2008-2009 should confirm with school administration that your buildings are reserved for the appropriate date(s) and that the event is on the official school calendar.  Please also take a few moments to check the directions to your school on the WACFL web site to ensure accuracy and provide updated information to This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.
