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.

2021-22 Rosters for the Elite National Team, will be announced when tryouts are complete.  Accepted players will receive an official invite letter.
