2021-22 Travel Team Tryouts
10u-AA / 12u-AA* / 18u Wrap*
14U - see below
*NYS Tournament Bound Teams
Spring tryouts are for our top team (typically our AA / Tournament Bound travel teams) in each division (10u / 12u / 14u / Wrap Teams). We are requesting ALL 14U players try out during the Spring 2021 (early May) tryout session for the upcoming season (2021-2022). This will help us determine how many teams we can accommodate at the 14U level. Players at the 10U, 12U and Wrap Team Levels should only attend these tryouts if they wish to play on our top level travel team. Players may be cut from tryouts at the end of each session.
Tryouts/Evaluations for our remaining teams (e.g., A, B, C) at the 10U and 12U levels will occur when the season begins in September.
