2020 Spring Season Update
Due to recent recommendations by the CDC, the Department of Health, and the ongoing status of COVID-19, the Sabercat organization has to push back the dates for the spring season.
Originally set for April 1-May 31, 2020, to a new date to be set at a later time. Thank you for your patience with us during this unprecedented time. We will continue to monitor the status and trends of the virus, the changes in travel policies, as well as any developing plans for our spring season and tryouts. If alternate plans become necessary, we will advise as soon as reasonably possible.
