How will I know if I made the team?
The Select Coaches will be contacting all participants by May 29th whether they made the team or not. 

We will hold a Parent Team Meeting after tryouts at the La Farge Public Library.

Team Meeting: We will meet together in a large group to discuss expectations, of parents and players, the training calendar, individual team schedules, and how to order uniforms. We will then break off into smaller groups by team, to complete paperwork, and payment, and to assign uniform numbers. Payment and paperwork can be completed online prior to the meeting to expedite the process. Scholarship applications will also be available at the team meeting. Representatives from the club will be available at the meeting to collect paperwork, payments, and to answer any questions.
