After tryouts, please stay in the main gym while coaches make decision who made the teams. Letters will be given to all athletes regardless if you make team or not. Please make sure you open your letter outside of the gym.


Numbers to be selected:

Our targeted amount to be selected is 10-12 players. However, this amount may change due to coach's decision.Coaches have the option of selecting the numbers of players on the team based on players who meet or exceed criteria used to select the team.


Tryouts are very competitive and it's not an easy experience for coaches, players and parents. In general, less than 1/2 of the tryout participants will be selected. We are sensitive to all our participants and want everyone to have a positive experience. By evaluating each player in various measures, we feel we have a sound of basis for making decisions. While the tryouts are not open to parents, our evaluation method is.


If you have any questions, please contact me.
