TRYOUTS

Tryouts are in September and done by grade level. Each player must be registered in order to recieve their T-shirt with numbering. Players are evaluated during a series of drills and game situations.  During these drills and games, players are graded on their work ethic, coaching-ability, communication with teammates, offensive skills, defensive skills, competitiveness, and other skills identified by our coaching staff and evaluators.  We usually have 4-6 coaches present during the tryouts.  After the 2nd tryout the coaches will give their evaluations of the girls. 


The teams will be announced via our website.
