2021-2022 Season-Returning Players

Shield

The club has decided that all current players who want to play next year will have a spot in the club. We are committed to placing all players on a team. In a very rare situation and after exhausting all other options a player can be offered a practice player placement if there is not an appropriate level team available. Practice players train with the team but do not play in games. A family would be contacted if this applies to you. 

U8-U15 (2014-2007 8th grade)

Step #1:

  • U8-U15 (8th grade) players that would like to play the 2021-2022 season need to register with the club by Monday, May 24, 2021. 
  • The first payment of $150 (non-refundable)  is required to reserve your  spot in the club.
  • Players not planning on returning for the 2021-22 season should notify their coach.

Step #2:

  • Players will receive their team placement on June 16, 2021.
  • Rosters, training schedules, and coach assignments will be sent in mid July.

Why is the club handling team placement in this way?

Because the spring 2021 season was the only complete competitive season of the 2020-21 club year, we feel it is important to give every player a chance to have at least one full season of playing before finalizing next year’s rosters. Additionally, if the club can minimize distractions, (new rosters announced for next year) while 3-4 weeks of the season remains, we feel that it will be beneficial to our players’ overall well-being. Lastly, we believe this approach will provide players a more comprehensive evaluation and ensure that players are placed on the appropriate team.

Yes. All Returning Elite S.C. Players are evaluated by their coaches and the Directors of Coaching throughout the year to determine which group and team they will be placed on for the 2021-22 seasons. However, due to the unique circumstances of the HS Girls 2020-21 club year, we will use a combination of evaluations from the Fall, Winter, Spring and open tryouts to place players.

Finalizing rosters in the winter will allow players the best opportunity to be further evaluated and will help ensure that players are placed on the appropriate team. Projected teams, team levels, and spring division levels are included in your group placement email.

Step #3:

  • All players are emailed a final team placement prior to the start of the spring season.
