Word of Grace Parking

  • Please be mindful of the No Parking Signs... many of the nearby businesses (especially across the street) have been known to tow.  If you are driving, build in some extra time to park. 
  • Games are scheduled on the Half Hour, so spaces regularly open up as the games finish
  • Please note that parking is permitted in the Touchdown Deli parking lot (on the right... immediately prior to Word of Grace)

Field Entrance

  • No Pets are Allowed.  This is a Word of Grace policy we are required to adhere to.

  • Only utilize the Main Gate (to left of the Word of Grace Building)

  • Please respect the Word of Grace property and do not attempt to access the fields through the church entrance.  At no time should any player, parent or fan enter the church in an attempt to gain access to the athletic fields and/or use the restrooms.

We have had a wonderful relationship with the good people at the church and wish to continue as such.  Please respect their property.

Player Registration Now Open




"There are not enough of my teammates available to field a team.  Can I still play?"

YES!  New this season, you can register as a Varsity or JV "Free Agent" and you will be placed on a team in need of aditional players.


"My school isn't listed in the registration... what should I do?"

Teams must be nominated by your HS Coach prior to player registration (starting Aug 1).  Confirm with your coach that your school has a team(s) signed up and what the team name is!


"Should I register for Varsity or JV?"

Reach out to your school's coaching staff for guidance.  If you don't have access to your coach until the start of school, make sure you have registered for one of your two teams... your registration can always be transferred later.
