  • Teams will practice twice per week at our home gym, Wintrust Sports COmplex
  • The Spring season will consists of 5-6 weekend tournaments at a variety of locations. Most will be within driving distance, potentially with one event that will require one nights hotel stay. Room blocks will be provided separate from season registration and cost!
  • Teams are offered for boys and girls, entering grades 3rd-12th (second grade boys are welcome to tryout for the 3rd grade team, unfortunately, many girls’ divisions are 3rd/4th grade for tournaments, so we will not host 2nd grade girls)
  • We host teams at all skill levels and typically have more than one team at each grade level
  • We highly encourage players to attend both tryout dates, but one is sufficient and will not affect your child’s team placement
