Girls Tryouts for 2023-24 Season

There was much discussion on a change for girls club tryouts from November to late July/early August. The reason for the consideration was due to the possibility that the National Qualifiers were going to require a roster for entry. If this were to happen, our teams would need a roster of at least 6 verified players and a head coach who was registered, background screened and current in their SafeSport training at the time of entry.

After much discussion at the Board meeting and passage of an early tryout proposal, the Junior Committee met to discuss the logistics of early tryouts. NO ONE WANTED TO DO EARLY TRYOUTS - not the Board, not anyone on the Jr Committee. It is not good for our players and their families, the school teams, the coaches and clubs that would now have NO break. The Board did not want to do this but wanted to protect the ability of our teams to be able to enter.

Since the Board meeting, it is now in writing by the USAV qualifiers that it's  removed the roster requirement from the acceptance process!

Club Directors, please view your emails from the AZ Region for more information.
