Any returning members or prepared novices are encouraged to sign up for the Yale Invitational, September 14-16.

Team members attending Yale will also be required to attend two “preseason” meetings in September after school begins. No spots are guaranteed, but registration opens August 1, so to maximize your chances, sign up below ASAP!
