Spring tryouts are for our AA / Tournament Bound travel teams in each division (10u / 12u / 14u / 16u Wrap / 18u Wrap).  Players should only attend these tryouts if they wish to play on our top level travel team.  Players can and will be cut from tryouts at the end of each session.  Tryouts/Evaluations for our remaining teams (e.g., B, C) will occur when the season begins in September.
