When Do Team Practices Start?
Practices are set to begin the week after our final tryout date. Practices will be held on Saturdays & Sundays. All practices are mandatory for all Club and 15U teams. A 100% commitment is the standard. Please schedule appointments, study time, family vacations, etc. around the practice & tournament schedule.
How many teams will there be?
We will compete in two divisions: Club (18U) and Future (15U).
Are There Player Cuts?
Yes. We will have more players trying out for roster spots (24 per team) than we have room. Juniors & Sophomores must make a Club team. Some Sophomores, Freshmen and 8th Grade athletes (based on age and date of birth) are eligible for Club or Future teams.
Are Tryout Dates Mandatory?
Yes. It is very competitive to make YPL Elite 7v7 travel team. We do not require for you to attend both tryouts but we do encourage that you attend both tryout dates. However, you only required to pay one tryout fee.
If I am Sick or Injured Should I Still Come to Tryouts?
Injured athletes should still come out to tryouts if they want to be considered for placement on a team. We WILL NOT make an injured athlete compete. If an athlete is sick please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
When Are Tryout Results Announced?
Parents & Athletes will be contacted by email or phone within 48 hours of our final tryout date. The email will include detailed information on what to expect for the season, team fees, tournament schedules info, etc.
How Many Athletes on Per Team?
We will carry 24 athletes per team.
How Many Practices Per Week?
Teams will practice twice per week (Saturday & Sunday) beginning in January. We DO NOT plan on scheduling any team practices during the week to allow our athletes to focus on their schoolwork.
How Many Tournaments Will You Do?
Our plan is to do at least TWO (2) tournaments per month. We want our athletes to get the most out of the 7v7 season. That goes for competitive and exposure.
PLEASE NOTE: Some tournaments will call for us to leave on Fridays due to length of travel so you may have to miss some Fridays from school.
If Offered Placement on a Team?
A deposit will be due within 72 hours after being offered a roster spot. Pricing will be emailed separately after accepting placement on a team. We can not guarantee roster spots unless payment has been made.
