Due to COVID-19, the 2020 season is currently on hold.  We are waiting for guidance from the county/city to determine if practices will be able to commence when California enters phase 3 of reopening the state.  Until then, we are in a holding pattern.  There will be no scheduled practices, events, or meets for the time being.  We will update you as we receive more information.  Thank you for your patience and understanding.
