The 14th Annual Stapleton Kickball Tournament has been postponed indefinitely.
The initial planned field location for the kickball location was not ready in time, and presented safety concerns. Efforts to relocate to another field for the same day were not feasible, as field space in the region is in great demand. With hope that the tournament can be rescheduled in 2017, we announce that the 14th annual Kickball Tournament is postponed, indefinitely.
