For the 2018-2019 season, we currently have qualified staff for 5/6 teams. We will have any variation of five teams within the 12-18's age groups. We will determine the age groups after tryouts. We will have 10-12 players on each team. Last season each team have 12 players on the roster. That will be the case this season for our developmental (second team in an age group) or younger teams again. Some teams will be below 12 players and will be more competitive for positions. Those teams will travel to more competitive tournaments and be expected to attend each day of a multi-day tournament. This will be determined by each age group level and tryout numbers. As a club, if a team drops below 9 players we will not be able to continue with that team. If after tryouts not enough players commit to a team we may not form a team in that age group.


We will consider accommodating a second  team in either the 12's, 14's, or 16's age group only.
