What if there isn’t an assessment for my child's age? If there is not a team offered for the age group that your athlete would fall under, you would register them for the next age group up. For example, if you have a 14-year-old and there is no 15U team to try out for, please enroll them in the 16U placements.


Can my child attend an assessment in a higher age bracket? The short answer is “Maybe”; we would recommend getting in touch with us first. Email: and we’ll let you know how you should approach this request.

When will I know if my athlete has made a team or not? If no offer letter has been received 48 hours after December 15th at 5:00pm, it can be assumed the athlete did not make a team. Inquiries can be made to
