“We are excited about the upcoming season,” said Robert Arnold, the Recreation and Activities coordinator with the city of Milton Parks and Recreation Department. “We have a great program developing with the city of Milton and are looking to build on what was started last year.
“Two new things for this season is the added goals in the gym to help with leagues and practices, as well as every player getting a complete uniform to keep.”
All games will be played at the Milton Community Center.
