    • In the event there are appropriate numbers to warrant more than one team:
      • Lead Coaches will make decisions regarding team placements which will be announced one week after the last schedule tryout.
      • The Lead Coaches will select a group of players for early selection to the first team, which will be between 50% – 75% of the roster maximum.  Players MUST attend at least 1 session to be eligible for early selection.
      • Decisions regarding the remaining spots on the roster will be announced by the last week of December.
      • Age groups with registration numbers not warranting splitting into two viable teams at the conclusion of the tryout/evaluation period will simply proceed as a single team until the addition of new players necessitates a split.
