White Cloud is coached by Tony McHattie, and team members include Captain Cameron Karnes, Jennifer Shepherd, Kiranna Franklin, and Delton Dowling. Their alternates are Janessa Shepard, Parker Karnes and Brendan Lodden.
Teams compete in elimination rounds as they vie for the championship in their division. The four starters and three alternates of the division championship teams will each receive a two year, $4,000 room and board scholarship from Central Michigan University Residence Life.
