MIDWEST REGIONAL TOURNAMENT: All teams will have the option to compete in our annual Midwest Regional Tournament.

WHAT IS THE FLIGHT ZONE COMPETITIVE LEAGUE ?
The Flight Zone Competitive league is designed to help our players take their game to the next level through more competitive game play against challenging competition. We believe that the more repetitions that players receive against equal or better talent, the better they will become.
Here are some of the differences between our recreational format and our competitive league:
- Teams may practice multiple times per week depending on their team coaching staff.
- You will compete against teams with generally higher athletic abilities and skills than the recreational format.
- Teams will play for a chance to compete in the leagues playoff.
Join the tradition and compete where excellence plays. If you have a team that you are looking to take to the next level, then you found the right program.
