How to Prepare for Tryouts:

  1. Fitness. Fitness is a crucial aspect of the game. You must be in great shape to play, as our games start almost immediately. This means it is imperative that you train consistently during the summer. Prepare yourself for your typical fitness tests (beep test, 300s, etc.).
  2. Technical ability and first touch. We are looking for strong players who can compete at a high level of play. Our goal is to win the league and Regionals, and earn a bid to Nationals. Footwork and ball control are some of the main elements we will be looking for during tryouts.
  3. Speed of play and field vision. Decision-making and awareness under pressure will be key to finding players who fit well into our squad. We expect you to be getting lots of touches over the summer by means of playing on a team, pickup games, training on your own, etc.
