Our seasons are split into two parts; the fall, which runs for approximately six weeks from September to mid-October; and the spring, which typically runs from April to June. During that time, we engage upwards of three hundred players in our league, which features regular inter-community play, as well as two larger scale tournaments to bookend the spring season.

Our not-for-profit group is looking for a dynamic and organized self-started who loves to engage with people and is looking for part-time work.
