ANYONE from ANYWHERE can try out for the OPEN teams. The goal of the OPEN is that these are the highest caliber teams in the area per age division. We will NOT create a team if we do not have the caliber that is needed to compete at high caliber tournaments. Cuts will be made as needed.
Last year we had VOLT Open 17-1, 17-2, 14-1 and 12-1.
We are willing to run these teams for 6 months as well, if we have the caliber needed to compete. We are also open to participation for just Winter season or just Spring season.
*Try-out fee: $25
*25 practices between Feb. 1 and May 22
*Practices could be any of the following days: Sunday, Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday. Times could range between 6-8, 7-9, or 8-10 with most being 8-10.
Practice schedule will come out mid-January for Spring season.
*At least 6-7 tournament weekends (many being out of the area and could be more than a 1 day tourney). Potential tournaments may include the Northern Lights Qualifier, the AAU at the Pentagon, and tournaments in the cities.
CAN MY DAUGHTER PARTICIPATE IF SHE IS IN OTHER ACTIVITIES? YES!
If she is in a school sport, that sport and its practices/games take priority. In order of our OPEN team to be our top team, we are looking for a commitment to practices and tournaments. If your daughter isn't at practice, she doesn't reach her potential, and if she is not at the tournament, the team cannot reach it's potential. As always, we understand there are exceptions, but we do need a level of commitment throughout the season. It is possible we place you on a different team, if commitment becomes an issue.
