Q:  Do we have to attend all tryout dates? 

We recommend that all players come to as many try out dates for their age group, it is not mandatory but coming to as many try out dates, gives our coaches more chances to see the player and get more assessments on them.

Q:  Which coach will coach which team?

Teams will be posted the Sunday or Monday after try-outs are completed.
