Hit the road 2015

The 4th of July holiday is over and that means its time for our local grassroots teams to hit the road for most of the next 3 weeks.  The 1st period is always a very Midwest feel as teams mostly stay close to home.

Here's the list for the 1st open period starting on Wednesday.  Interesting that Heat Vang gets super pooled in Indy for the 2nd straight year.  They also have a strange split in the schedule where they will play Wednesday night, twice on Thursday and after their 6 PM game on Thursday, will not play again until Saturday morning.  The 1st 12 17U pools in Milwaukee have a Minnesota representative.  Iowa has many local 2nd teams.  Chicago also well represented with Minnesota teams.
