Start a Team
Don’t have a team yet? The UPA has a helpful guide for starting one at http://www3.upa.org/juniors/newteams/team_index.html
Have a few players, and looking for more? SLUA can be a valuable source for helping get teams started. We provide Coaching Clinics, will meet with School officials, and can help pair you up with coaches in your area. If you have a group looking for more players, let us know – we’ll be keeping a list, and can put people in touch with each other.
