4. ARRIVE EARLY!

Please arrive 20 minutes early to turn in paperwork, get photo taken, and get dressed.

5. PARENTS ARE NOT ALLOWED TO STAY AND WATCH

COVID has forced additional restrictions for tryouts where we can no longer allow parents to be in the facility during tryouts. 

What are coaches looking for in a player at tryouts? Attitude, Athleticism, Adaptability, Coach​ability, Competitive Edge, and Potential. Some coaches are assigned to run drills, other coaches are dedicated to evaluation.

6. COMMITMENT NIGHT

Once you have been selected & committed to a team, you will be provided more information regarding commitment night from your coach. 

Due to COVID we will not be having a club wide commitment night. Paperwork will be sent and signed electronically. We will have uniform fitting nights and your coach will let you know when those are scheduled.
