TRYOUT FORMAT: Tyke & Minor Novice

Tyke and Minor Novice teams will be selected using a two-step process which includes neutral third-party evaluators working in conjunction with appointed coaches and the Select Committee to form teams. The first step is for ALL players to attend two open skills evaluation sessions. From those sessions, players are ranked and then invited to attend individual team tryouts. As children develop and mature at different rates, it should be expected that players will be moved between teams and that playing on a given team one season is not a guarantee to play on that team the following season.

TRYOUT FORMAT: Novice and older

These tryouts are managed by the appointed coaches. In cases where there is enough interest for more than one Select team, the higher-tier team will be chosen first and then additional tryouts will be held to determine the second (or third) teams.


All Select players must participate in their respective House Leagues. Attendance is taken and suspensions given for Select players who miss games without a documented reason.
