. They will give you promotional items from our sponsors for your team. They will also inform you of any last minute changes.2.
Each site will have a Site-Supervisor. This person will be in charge of the games at thatsite. They will determine if the fields are playable at the start of the day and willdetermine if the games can resume if stopped for lightning. The Site-Supervisor will alsoresolve any issues not covered in this handbook.3.

third team from Glenview. The regional designations are: “DF” for Deerfield; “GV” forGlenview; “MG” for Morton Grove; “HP” for Highland Park; “SK” for Skokie
