(the travel uniform has a number and is completely different than the In-Town uniform)

Help Keep Somerville’s Fields Nice and Tidy

Please make sure that you and your children have picked up any trash, water bottles, wrappers, etc. prior to leaving the fields.

Coaches – please check your team area for trash before leaving the field.
