Select Side Games and Camps

From Steven Davis:

Hey everyone! We are gearing up for another select side season and wanted to reach out to get a head start on the season.

Based on feedback from last season, we are looking to:

  • Get an earlier jumpstart on tryouts
  • Offer additional opportunities for our teams to train together, gain familiarity and cohesion before events.
  • Include sufficient levels of live-play within our tryout process(es).
  • Quick turnaround process on selections and notifications for all players of status.
  • Continue to improve our evaluation and selection process

Following is an outline of this season’s structure and our tentative schedule so you can begin to put things on the calendar and plan for them.
