Tentative Plan For Each Age Group

2013 Boys 

We currently have 3 teams for the Spring 2020 season. Typically we have an additional 40-50 new players join during the Spring tryout for this age group. While coaches have a good idea of the placement of our current players, our plan is to invite ALL 2013s to a player pool. We will form tentative teams for jamborees and team camps ahead of finalizing Fall season rosters in mid August.

 

Some 2013 teams will play in the league (similar to 2011 and 2012 age groups), while others will play in the Pre-Dev Program. Since the youngest age group of the league we play is 2012, the 2013 league teams would play up in this division for the Fall. Playing up a year may not be the best fit for all 2013 teams though, and so we will have these teams initially play in the Pre-Dev program for the Fall, with a view to playing in the league come Spring 2021 (first games are Feb 2021). As always, we will make our decision based on what is best for the long-term development of our players.

2014 Boys 

All 2014 players will be invited to be part of our Pre-Dev program. Each year we typically have 40 players at this age group, with one or two players usually playing up with the 2013 boys in the Fall if we feel it is the right place for their development.

2013 Girls

We currently have 2 teams for the Spring 2020 season and so coaches will select teams based on their assessments of players from Spring. Typically we have an additional 10-20 new players join during the Spring tryout. While coaches have a good idea of the placement of our current players, our plan is to invite ALL 2013s to a player pool. We will form tentative teams for jamborees and team camps ahead of finalizing Fall season rosters in mid August. 

Some 2013 teams will play in the league (similar to 2011 and 2012 age groups), while others will play in the Pre-Dev Program. Since the youngest age group of the league we play is 2012, the 2013 league teams would play up in this division for the Fall.

2014 Girls

All 2014 players will be invited to be part of our Pre-Dev program. Each year we typically have 10-20 players at this age group, with one or two players usually playing up with the 2013 girls in the Fall if we feel it is the right place for their development.
