Our New Website

We are looking forward to sharing with you some enhancements we made to our website. This should enable us to communicate more effectively with our parents, coaches and teams. Over the next few months we will be rolling out our website's updated features in preparation for the Crystal Lake Raiders 2014 season. As a main source of communication, we want to make it as robust and engaging as possible. Along with

providing a pleasing registration experience, the Raiders website can consolidate calendars from multiple teams, and then download to your phone. Each team will also have their own pages, so there will ne no need to set them up elsewhere. Aside from the specific features, we think this should help save our league and teams a lot of time and keep them running more efficiently. READ MORE
