Heart of the Valley (HOV) is for girls in grades 3-6 and is a league that introduces team play with the emphasis on individual development and is less competitive. No girls will be cut and if a grade fields more than one team, the players will be split equally. All players will have equal playing time to the best of the coach's ability. HOV games will take place on the first three Saturdays in November. Teams will travel to a school within the Valley area and play approximately three games each week. This program is only available to girls in the public school system and home schooled students, however, exceptions will be made if there is no team available at a parochial school. Practices for the HOV season will begin in October.
