Start of the Spring Season

The 2014 Spring Season is upon us. We will be running touch each Sunday starting Sunday Jan. 12th. Regular season practices will begin on Feb. 4th. We will be having a supplemnetal Sunday practice in addition to the regular Tuesday and Thursday practices each week for the start of the season to help prepare for our first league match. That match is a double header in Portland on March 1st and 2nd so make sure you are preparing for that now as far as time off from work and fitness are concerned.

The Fall Season is here!

After a very successful 2012/2013 season that saw your Snakes take 4th place in the nation, it is time once again to clean the slate and begin another campaign of excellence. We will be having one last touch session on Sunday 9/1/13 at Williams Park which will be followed by a potluck BBQ where we will talk more about the upcoming season. Official practices start on Tuesday 9/3/13 and the first match is 9/21/13 at home vs. The Tsunamis.

If you have any questions or are interested in playing, send us a message either on our Facebook page or email Mik Lose at tongantitan12@yahoo.com.

Snake River moves on to the Final Four.

After two very tough matches in Dallas, Snake River emerged victorious to earn a Final Four berth. The final win came in a 26-20 victory of Tulsa on the back of an inspired, man down, defensive stand that lasted for the final 5 minutes.

As we prepare to travel to Infinity Park in Glendale we would like to invite any and all of our fans who can make the trip. We appreciate all the support throughout the season and this is the weekend we have all been working towards. We wouldn’t be here if it wasn’t for all of you. Those of you who can’t make it, stay tuned to the team Facebook page for updates.
