We expect a lot from each other....it's how we have the most fun. Others may like to relax and play hard when convenient....good for them, but that's not how we have fun. We enjoy pushing ourselves and each other to the limit and we expect a Reaper to have the equipment, time, and commitment to keep up.
If requesting membership for the team please contact Jay "Shadowfox" or James "Rook" below.
You should receive a reply from one of the officers within 24 hours. In order to join, you will have to show up at one of our practices and "try out." Basically a "try out" is seeing how well you mesh with the team and keep up. It should be a relaxing and fun day for everyone. We also accept field requests at games for membership, basically just keep up with us on the field and enjoy the game!
