KLM’s “Spring Fantasy” and “Spring Tourney” series are designed and scheduled to be complementary (starting as early as U7-U10). Significant player development occurs during the spring season in players who attend both, and commit to achieving their next level. The Fantasy series creates significant play opportunities while the Tourney series creates team experiences against varied opposition.
