WHY HAVE TRYOUTS?
EACH TEAM HEAD COACH WITHIN YOUR NEW DIVISION WILL OBSERVE EACH PARTICIPANT.  THE LEAGUE HOLDS TRYOUTS FOR SEVERAL REASONS INCLUDING PLAYER SAFETY AND FAIR DISTRIBUTION OF ABILITY.

WHAT IF I DON'T ATTEND TRYOUTS?
TRYOUTS ARE CONDUCTED FOR PRIMARILY TWO REASONS, THE MOST IMPORTANT TO BE PLAYER SAFETY.  LEAGUE ADMINISTRATION OBSERVES EACH PLAYER TO MAKE CERTAIN THAT PARTICIPATION IN THAT DIVISION WILL NOT BE A SAFETY CONCERN.  ATTENDING A SCHEDULED TRYOUT IS REQUIRED IN ORDER TO PARTICIPATE IN THAT DIVISION.  IF YOU ARE AGE 9, YOU MUST TRYOUT FOR THE MAJOR DIVISION.
