Tryouts for boys and girls will be held Saturday and Sunday, September 10 and 11, for youth going into grades 4-8 this coming fall. Both boys and girls will have tryouts on Saturday and Sunday. All tryouts will be held at St. Thomas Academy High School.
It is expected that prospective players attend both days of tryouts. This ensures that each player has the opportunity to be seen more than once by the evaluators. This is not a requirement in order to make a team, but it will give your son or daughter more of a chance to show what he/she can do.
More information on specific times for each grade level will be coming later this summer.
