Thank you to our ALC community for your flexibility and patience! The collapse of the Hampshire Dome is having a huge impact on many organizations. I know they will come back better than ever and we look forward to being back in the Dome again! In the mean time, we are pleased to announce we were able to secure indoor field space for our players at the NH Sportsplex for the rest of the month of March. Please see the schedule below. We will hopefully be on the grass fields in April but will continue to assess the situation as we get closer and make adjustments accordingly.
