Q- How do the 7th/8th grade programs work with the RMS 7th/8th grade programs?
A- The BFB 7th and 8th grade Competitive Travel teams and the RMS 7th and 8th grade school teams
operate concurrently. Because almost all of the 7th and 8th grade boys on the BFB Competitive Travel
teams are also on the RMS teams, and the RMS teams are practicing every day, the BFB 7th and 8th
grade Competitive Travel teams do not need to practice as much. As a result, in order to prevent
overlap and burnout, the BFB 7th and 8th grade Competitive Travel teams are limited to one practice
per week and can only play 1 game per week on either Saturday afternoon or Sunday during the school
