The purpose of tryouts is to determine the rosters of our teams to start the season. The teams are comprised of players as follows.
Varsity: Players with the ability, attitude/character, and size spanning grades 9-12
Junior Varsity: 11th and 12th graders not on varsity
B Squad: 10th graders
9th Grade: Incoming freshmen
Not only are we looking to determine the varsity roster, but many years, we also need to move some kids up a level just to make sure our numbers are appropriate for each team. These determinations are made during tryouts week and are based on the following criteria:
2) Attitude and Character
While being at the first week of practice is important, we typically do not cut. If a player misses tryouts, he would be able to join his grade appropriate team upon return from vacation and may miss out on the opportunity to move up.
