Evaluations have been scheduled for traveling players 4th Grade through 8th Grade. Every player should be at both evaluation dates, September 20th and October 4th at the Big Lake High School.
**Volunteer checks ($150, not cashed unless volunteer hours are not fulfilled) AND tournament deposit checks ($100 per player, cashed after October 1st) are due at evaluations. If your age group is not evaluating, we do need these checks turned in, either at the parents' meeting or at one of these evaluation dates. Please put your players name in the memo line of the check.
The schedule is listed below, please make sure players are 15 minutes early for the check in process and pinning numbers on their shirts (front and back). Your help with the numbers is greatly appreciated.
Sunday, September 20:
Sunday, October 4:
Again, if your player's age/gender is not listed above, they will not have evaluations, but checks are still due prior to October 4.
We will have uniforms available to try on at evaluations.
**Teams will be determined within a week after evaluations.**
ALL PARTICIPANTS WILL BE REQUIRED TO HAVE A PARENT OR GUARDIAN RETURN A SIGNED COVID WAIVER. You may find the WAIVER here.
