YCFC - January 19th event at De La Salle

Cut and pasted from email 

A Happy New Year to all!

Following is the announcement for our January 19th tournament at De La Salle Institute, co-hosted by St. Columbanus Elementary School.  

This year, we will be expanding our Novice sections from two to four for the January and February tournaments. This tournament will have a total of five sections - Novice K-2, Novice 3-4, Novice 5-6, Novice 7-8, and Advanced. Each Novice section will award seven individual trophies and two team trophies.  Overall, we will be awarding 43 trophies, up from the usual 33.  Don't miss this improved chance at taking home a trophy!

Those who have rosters on file need only submit additions to the roster - an entry list is not needed.
Please make note of the balance of our schedule below. I'm happy to report that we will be returning to Northside College Prep for the big February event!
