Frequently asked questions

Tryouts

What are tryouts?

Tryout format consists of overall skill testing, position-specific skill testing (for 13U, 14U, and 15U age groups), and end with team competition evaluation. At the conclusion of each tryout, we will invite athletes to accept an offer either for a specific team or for a position in the club.

For 13U, 14U, 15U athletes who receive an offer, it will be for a specific team. 13U, 14U, and 15U athletes will have to make a decision on their offer that night.

For 10U, 11U, and 12U athletes who receive an offer it is an offer to be a part of the club. 10U, 11U, and 12U athletes will participate in a 6 week program in the Fall and be placed on a specific team at the conclusion of that program. 10U, 11U, and 12U athletes will have 48 hours to make a decision, but most will make a decision that night.

How are club teams chosen?

For 13U, 14U, and 15U players, teams are selected on the day of tryouts. Players are evaluated on general skills first (all players will do all skills), they will then participate in position specific evaluations, and end with live play competition/drills. A combination of all three evaluations and intangibles (effort, attitude, etc.) are all factors in team placement/receiving an offer for a team.

 

For 10U, 11U, and 12U athletes, players are invited to be a part of the club at the conclusion of tryouts. They will be evaluated on general skills first and then participate in live play competition/drills. During the Fall, they will participate in a 6 week league and at the conclusion of the league will be placed on teams. A combination of all of these evaluations and intangibles (effort, attitude, etc.) are all factors in team placement.
