Q: There are 2 or more tryout dates posted – do we have to attend all of them?

Q: What if my child will be out of town during tryouts?
A: Please email us at email@example.com as well as the respective coach with that information. There are no guarantees that a spot will be available, or a player will be invited for a separate tryout.
Q: What if my child wants to play up an age group?
A: Please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org as well as the respective coach with that information prior to tryouts. We advise players to TRYOUT with their proper age group. We will grant or decline that request after due consideration.
