How tryouts work

 

1) Following a group warm-up, players can expect the following:

    - be prepared to identify which position(s) you intend to tryout for (this does not lock the player into that position)

    - expect to be divided into groups so coaches can observe players in their position using small group drills

    - during 6v6 play, coaches may move players around and substitute other players

2) At the end of tryouts, players can leave the facility.  Selection will happen following the end of tryouts once the coaches have had a chance to analyze the players

2) FJVC will call the player to confirm a spot on a team.  Be sure to confirm your contact number when you check in

3) Plan to attend the parent's meeting where parents are expected to commit with a deposit at the end of the meeting.

4) It is mandatory to attend the parents meeting in order to keep your spot on a team.
