Manager Feedback

Your feedback is important to us!  All of us on the LG Board try to make as many games as we can throughout the season to see our wonderful coaches in action, but we need your help! We can't see everything, so please take just a few minutes and fill out the end of year surveys below. We take each review into consideration when determining coaches for the next season, and your feedback is our most important tool!  Thank you, and we hope you had a great season!!
