Kindergarten through Fifth Grade Teams for Girls and Boys: teams play in-house with other DUMC teams. Teams have one weekday evening practice and one weekend game.
Middle and High School Teams for Girls and Boys: teams participate in the "Metro Travel League" comprised of local recreation teams from Dunwoody Baptist, Sandy Springs UMC, local YMCAs and others. Teams have one weekday evening practice and weekend games (usually one each week).
