The Long Island Elite National Team:

 

Long Island Elite National Teams travel to play the best teams in the country. These are special all-star teams chosen to represent Long Island in national competitions. Participation on the Elite National Team is separate and does not conflict with PAL/Town or school teams. The shedule of events for the LIE National team varies from year-to-year depending on field availability and a number of other considerations. In the past teams have played in the LI-NJ Rumble at MetLife stadium in August, National Championships in December/January, and the Liberty Challenge in June. There are also various clinics, combines, and other activities throughout the year in which players develop their skills.

 

The non-refundable tryout fee is $100 and includes participation in all tryouts. The registration fee if you are invited to the team is $585 and is separate from the tryout fee.

We offer several need-based scholarships every year through our hardship application. In 15 years we have never turned a player away for financial reasons. 

TRYOUT IS OPEN FOR 6U, 7U, 8U, 9U, 10U, 11U, 12U, 13U, 14U teams!
COACHING APPLICATIONS ACCEPTED FOR ALL TEAMS.

Players should attend every tryout for maximum consideration.

We cannot consider anyone for a team that has not filled out the online registration form and paid the tryout fee. It does not matter who you know, who you spoke with, if you were on a team last year, or how many tryouts you attended. If you don’t fill out the online registration and pay the fee you won’t be considered for a team because we have no record of you in our system.

Your online registration is reconciled and matched up with the data from tryouts that coaches look at. This is an extremely tedious job that cannot be done by our volunteers without the online forms to streamline the process. Everyone must complete the online registration form and pay the tryout fee.

Hundreds of players will be evaluated based on the data that was collected at tryouts, observations, and any film that was sent in.

2022-23 Rosters for the Elite National Team, will be announced when tryouts are complete.  Accepted players will receive an official invite letter.
