Teams will be selected no later than mid-October. Detailed Travel try-out schedules will be published in mid-late September.

Players need to check-in at each tryout they attend, bring a full water bottle, wear sneakers, and wear a white t-shirt with their 1st initial and last name in sharpie on the back.

SELECTIONS: Players will be selected for teams based on their performance at tryouts, skills, coach-ability, attitude and commitment.

PLAYER OBLIGATIONS: If selected, the player will be required to: (1) provide proof of grade and residence by submitting a FCPS SIS printout OR a copy of the most recent report card, a letter from your childs' current school signed by an official, and a copy of a recent utility bill; and (2) submit a medical release and an emergency contact information form.

Participation in the Travel program requires extra commitment and dedication. After tryouts, teams begin practicing in October twice a week for 90 minutes each and play a 12 to 14 game regular season schedule on weeknights and weekends at gyms throughout the County. Most teams play in the County post-season tournament in March.
