Players from PA will have an opportunity to play against teams from all over the world.  What makes State Wars so great is players from all over the state having an opportunity to play together and for different coaches from different organizations to be involved. If anyone from your organization is interested in coaching please let us know.  Once teams are selected and we see the rosters then we start assigning coaches.
