The President at their discretion may appoint Tournament Coordinators to run Tournaments. Tournament Coordinators will only have responsibility to ensure smooth operation of each tournament.

All new players must tryout. Players moving up from a division (10u to 12u or 12u to 16u) must tryout to be selected for the new division. Players in the 16u division who have been in the division for 2 years must tryout again with the exception of players entering their 16 year-old season. In that case, Managers may agree to waive tryouts and except the player returning to their team.

Returning players in the 10u and 12u division do not need to tryout to return to their teams. Ten year-old players wishing to tryout for the 12u division may tryout for the 12u division and not lose their 10u roster spot if not selected for the 12u division.

Tryouts will be held in August. Draft will be held in late August. No new teams will be formed after the draft. Special Tryouts after the initial tryouts in August may only be held if a player leaves a team, injury or a team needing a specific position. Special Tryouts may only be approved by the Executive Board.
