This one-day event includes one game that is preceded by a performance testing session for each team. The testing will be led by the Scottish Rite for Children Movement Science Lab which is leading a research initiative called the SAFE Program. The Specialized Athlete Functional Evaluation (SAFE) is a project which invites athletes and teams of all skill levels and ages to perform a variety of movements and sports-related tasks to assess balance, mobility, agility, and strength. The activities and game will last approximately two hours and each athlete will take home their performance scores including suggestions to reduce risk of injuries.

For your game, you can play the team of your choice if both teams register and both teams agree to the matchup.  Just let us know.
