  • Each team has 10 registration spots.
  • Cost is $395 per player.
  • Submit a uniform order immediately after registration.

TRYOUT REGISTRATION

Coaches will choose to go the tryout route to make up their roster. These coaches are looking for specific players. The registration link to join this type of team is a private link that is provided by the coach directly to the selected players after holding one or more tryouts. Simply register through that link and you're on the team and ready to go.

THE SEASON IS OVER - NOW WHAT DO I DO?

My child just completed a season on a team. How do I continue on that team to the next season? Is my spot gone?

  • Your child will have roster priority going into the next season.
  • All the players on the previous season roster will be sent the private registration link. Simply register and you're in.
  • If any players drop off of the team, the remaining roster spots will either be open to a tryout or public registration to fill out the team.

DO I NEED TO GET A UNIFORM EVERY SEASON?

No you do not. It doesn't hurt to have an extra uniform and it is included in the fee. If you do not need another uniform you will need to choose the NO UNIFORM NEEDED link from the drop down.
