NEW THIS YEAR

A couple of new developments:

  1. The RRCL now offers five player teams. The cost for a fifth player is $150 for the season. The fee entitles the player to full membership privileges in the league. If this interests your team, please contact our membership coordinator, John for more details.
  2. The Rainbow Rockers will be moving to the Five-Rock Free Guard Zone for the 2018-2019 season. All regular leagues at the OCC will also be adopting this rule. More details to follow before the start of the season.See you at the Meet & Greet!
