7th Select and Travel  will be coached by Parent Coaches and will be selected after the team is announced
8th Select  and Travel will be coached by independent, non parent coaches
Every girl will make a team (if your daughter does not make the Select team, she will automatically be placed on a Travel)
The number of Travel teams will depend on how many girls are registered. Our Goals is as follows:

Both Select and Travel will have approximately 10 games and  2 tournaments

Commitment level required for Select team is greater than Travel- See Participation Policy below.

 

Timing/Scheduling
 
Practices will be Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday
Almost all 8th Grade Select and Travel  games will be played on Friday and  Saturday ( requirement in order to play Full Checking)
Due to Field Space and opponent availability some of the 7th Travel games and 7th Select games will  be played on weekdays( not always on Tuesdays and Thursdays)
 
 tryouts: 
                                                 
 
Tryouts will be run by independent board members and coaches; announcements will be made within 1 or 2 days after tryouts.  You will also be provided with the Select Spring schedule at that time so that you have all of the information to make your decision
 
Travel teams will be consist of players the do not make the Select team and those players that choose not try out
 
 The Travel team for 7th grade will carry a larger roster and will rotate players for games ( i.e. There will be approx. 16 Travel games on the schedule and each girl will dress for 10 of those games)
