After tryouts-”Then What?”

  • Within 48 hours of tryouts, we will email an online form to each athlete informing them of the team they have made and ask them for an “intent to play” confirmation. If you chose yes, the first down payment will be due on November 1, the first official day allowed to commit to a club.  Athletes will need to make their first payment by logging in to their Suncoast account, going to “my account”, “shop”, and choosing the correct team and payment option.

  • After November 1, we will fill any positions that have not been confirmed or for any player that we do not have a down payment, with alternate players.  A second tryout on November 1 MAY be held to determine the best alternate player to add to the team, or if there is a player that can be moved up from another team.  We may also invite players that missed our first tryout to the second tryout.

The tentative practice schedule for November will be posted on the club calendar on October 27.  This may be adjusted depending on the number of teams we have for the 2014-15 schedule.
