Please complete tryout registration no later than 48 hours before the first tryout for each team for which you are trying out. Registrations are tied to a particular team. You do not need to register for your second or third tryout for a particular team, if the same parent/guardian will accompany the player. If a different parent/guardian will accompany the player to one of the tryouts, a second (or third) registration must be completed.

  • One parent/guardian accompanying the player to the first and third tryout but a different parent/guardian accompanying the player to the second tryout: two tryout registrationsone for each parent/guardian.
  • Three different people accompanying the player to the three tryouts for a particular team: three tryout registrationsone for each parent/guardian.

If you are trying out for one team and get cut, you must register again for the second team's first tryout.

  1. No player releases will be issued prior to tryouts.

  2. Player releases for U10 to U13 are at the discretion of the association in conjunction with the head coach.

  3. Player releases, for each category of AAA/AA/A as needed, can be requested if you attend a tryout and are not invited back to the next tryout for that category.

This procedure is in accordance with the LOR Regulation and there will be NO EXCEPTIONS.
