Celebrate the New Season – We Invite You to Attend a Kickoff Event Near You!

Kick-off not only announces the new season Game Challenge, but also provides an opportunity for teams to gather, to bond, to compare notes, exchange ideas, make new friends, re-kindle the existing friendship bonds, learn the game and get geared-up for the exciting competition season.
Needless to say the COVID the 2020-21 Season was a challenging one for us all. It’s time to move FIRST FORWARD into the new 2021-22 FREIGHT FRENZY Season and CELEBRATE our 2021-22 Kick-off into a new and better Season!
