  • Deadline = Monday, AUGUST 8th

    5:45pm – 8:00pm – 9th and 10th graders
  • WHAT WILL TRYOUTS LOOK LIKE? They are formatted a lot like Open Gyms! Lots of skills, drills, mini-games, full games, playing, fun
    and great attitudes!
  • HOW WILL MY ATHLETE KNOW IF SHE MADE THE TEAM ? Each athlete will have an individual conversation with Coach Schick at the
    end of tryouts.
  • As a program, we match all the time (at practice, at matches, traveling to/from, etc), so each player will need to purchase a player pack
  • Cost is approx. $175-$200
  • If any athlete needs help with this, our Booster Club has the ability to provide support here. Please reach out to Coach Schick with
  • Player pack items include (3) practice t-shirts, a hoodie, shorts, a pair of spandex, a pair of white kneepads, and white socks…these are all
    items that belong to the athletes for good
  • Our program provides jerseys and backpacks, which get returned back to us at the end of the season
  • “Usual” Practice Times (M-Th) = Level 3 / Level 4 = 3:00pm – 5:00pm, Varsity / JV = 5:00pm – 7:30 pm
  • Fun Friday Practices = ALL 4 LEVELS Practice Together = 3:00 – 5:00pm
  • “Usual” Match Times = Level 3 / Level 4 = 4:30pm, JV = 5:30pm, V = 6:30pm
  • Study nights for L3 and L4 athletes
  • Probably NO Buses; personal transportation options may be necessary
  • ALL TEAMS are present for all games, both home and away
  • HOME MATCHES – Each team will have match duties to sign up for, to work one other team’s match. We’ll train them how to perform those
    duties, they’re pretty easy!
  • GPA 2.0 or higher required; no F’s.
  • Academic ineligibility means that athletes cannot play in matches but can come to practice. If we have them, we handle these issues
    individually and on a case-by-case basis, i.e. sometimes it makes sense for athletes to miss practice, too, in order to catch up on school
  • We’re hoping for 100% attendance!
  • Our parents are critical to our success as a program! Thank you in advance for your time and support.
  • Committees to join:
    ○ Car Wash
    ○ Scholarship
    ○ Spirit
    ○ Banquet
    ○ Concessions
    ○ Photo/Video – end of season “slideshow”
    ○ Stadium Seats
  • Each team will need a Team Parent, to be determined next Friday at our Season Kick Off and Parent Meeting. Major roles include
    communicating with all team members/parents and organizing the FOOD mission.
  • We will run a Snap!Raise online fundraiser, as well as an all-program Car Wash (September 10), concession stand at home matches, and
    sell stadium seats… More to come from the Booster Board soon!
