Evaluations (for 10U and 12U only)
Evaluations are used to determine team placement. They will take place in early March.
They currently are only held for 10U and 12U players. At the 10U level, players have the ability to opt-in to a C-level team with no tryouts required during registration. There are no tryouts for 6U and 8U.
After evaluations have been completed, the Team Formation Committee will meet to form and approve teams.

*Additional fee will be assessed after tryouts for those players assigned to a team with a paid coach (~$100-$150)
