For boys and girls born in 2000, 2001 and 2002 ONLY
The District Select Program is open to all players and includes four training sessions and two one-day festivals, one in the fall and one in the spring. At the conclusion of the process, a pool of approximately 36-50 players for each age group and gender will be identified for further training and potential selection to a regional camp in July 2014.
District Select offers an ideal opportunity for players to sample the program without the pressure of a traditional tryout situation. Players are encouraged to attend as many sessions as possible and can sign up for whichever district they prefer based either on geographic location or day of the week.
