There are total of (12) hours of try-outs, (3 different days, 2- sessions per day, each session is 2 hours long). Attending every try-out session is NOT Mandatory, however if you fail to attend one of the first sessions  and then you get ill, injured or have a club team conflict later in the try-out process, you may be eliminating yourself by virtue of not participating earlier on.  We highly recommend you attend the first session possible in order to avoid any scheduling conflicts later in the process.  All players must pre-register online, pay the try-out fee and attend at least ONE try-out Session (including State and Regional players) to be rostered to the final pool. Try-outs will not be extended past the October date.

Medical injury letters must include the following: Type of injury, Date of injury, and Statement from physician that the player is unable to participate until ___________ (date). Refunds for injuries (or any portion of the try-out fee) will not be issued if a player has already participated in a try-out session.  Again, we strongly encourage players to get to the first sets of try-outs in order to avoid conflicts, future injury or loss of try-out fees. If you have any questions regarding the refund policy, please contact the Cal North office, prior to registering.  There will be No Refunds, for any reason after September 1st.

 We are most proud of the Regional and National players and feel it is very important for them to attend a try-out and provide the opportunity for other players to actually see the level of play that Regional and National coaches are looking for.
