Questions & Answers 

Is this a new program?

Are players from outside the club allowed to try-out?

  • Yes, we encourage players from any and all clubs to try out for the team.

What if I can't make the try-outs?

  • No problem if you can't make try-outs. Please sign up online but contact Abe and Jason and let them know you can't make it. They will be in touch to come up with an alternative evaluation plan.
