TRYOUTS- ARE TEAMS PREDETERMINED?
We strive to keep the core of teams together. However, every year is new opportunity for everyone and we remain open minded to all. Players are selected for teams based on talent, skill and positions at the time of tryouts. Our club philosophy is to invite players to tryouts, but not to pressure or bribe them with offers and promises. Inviting players to our tryouts does not guarantee a certain team or position. Rumors regarding tryouts or player selection are inevitable. However, we are an ethical, honest club and will always remain so.
IF MY DAUGHTER IS NOT ABLE TO ATTEND AN OUT OF STATE TOURNAMENT, ANY SCHEDULED TOURNAMENT, PRACTICE, OR TRAINING, DO WE STILL HAVE TO PAY?
