Spring games rosters are being collected

Updated 8/3/2017

If you have not yet submitted your spring games roster of athletes to the Morrisville office, please do so by August 18.  It is the perfect time before the program year gets underway.  This is for your local spring games; it has nothing to do with training rosters or preparation for state-level events.  Rosters can be emailed to or faxed to 919-719-7663.

By the end of August, SONC will send each local program a full list of all athletes on record for your program.  It is a great opportunity to review what needs to be updated and ensure all paperwork is in order in preparation for the 2017-2018 year.
