July is alight with fireflies and fireworks. This month marks our nation's birthday and ever-popular Waynesboro traditions such as the Summer Extravaganza, Groovin' at the Greenway and the Waynesboro Generals. Balmy temperatures, starry skies, and live music make a winning combination in Waynesboro, where good times come naturally!

Players need to have completed at least one year of college with eligibility still remaining to join the team. The season consists of 44 regular season games from early June to late July, with a championship play-off series extending into early August and finishing no later than August 10.
