This year the Blue Jays are represented by two teams — 3rd and 4th grades combined and 5th and 6th grades combined. The Blue Jays bring back a host of familiar faces and have welcomed many more to Blue Jay Brotherhood.
“The heartbeat of this community is found in between the walls of our schools.We encourage the entire community to come out and support these young men. To see the entire community pull together and stand together is what supporting our kids is all about,” coach Alan Mathews said.
