Tryouts: 8 Day Waiting Period Explained

This year, based on the membership vote at the Annual General Meeting last November, there is a statewide 8-day waiting period from the first possible day of tryouts until a club can require a commitment from a family and be bound to that club for the year. The rationale is to give families a chance to explore options and participate in multiple tryouts before being pressured by a club to commit to a roster spot.

  • U9–U11 players (2007 birth year and younger): tryouts can begin on July 12 and the first day these players can be bound to a club is July 20.
  • U12 and older players (2006 birth year and older): tryouts can begin on July 30 and the first day these players can be bound to a club is August 7.
