|What to Expect|
|When players first arrive, they must submit a completed BYSL registration form at the sign-in table (or check-in if the player registered early). Players will be required to return the completed Team/Coach Preference form to the sign-in table. The Team/Coach Preference form lists the teams (and respective coaches) that are available for that age group. The player identifies which team he/she wants to play for in order of preference. (Be sure to pick more than one coach in case you don’t get your first choice.). If desired, players will be allowed to change their picks after the session. All available teams are represented at tryouts, and players follow instructions as to which field to go to during the process.During Session 1 players will “tryout” for two teams of their choice. Players will spend 45 minutes with each team. In between Sessions coaches/clubs are encouraged to be available for a “meet and greet” where parents and players can ask questions regarding philosophies, schedules, number of tournaments, costs, etc. For Session 2, players will attend the “tryout” of one team of their choice for 45 minutes. Then all players in the age group will participate in a large scrimmage where coaches may observe all of the players in a group.Coaches use the tryouts to develop their list of Player Preferences. At the end of tryouts, the Team/Coach Preference forms from the players and the Player Preferences from the coaches are evaluated to match teams and players. A committee meets the following week and the new season rosters are compiled and returned to the coaches. Once these rosters are returned to the individual coaches, then they may contact the players listed on their new team roster. Contact from the coaches can be expected within 10 days after tryouts. Once a player has gone through the tryout process and has indicated their team preferences on the team/coach preference sheets, those players are considered “Committed” and contact between representatives (Parents, Players, Coaches, Managers, etc.) from another team is considered Illegal Recruiting and WILL NOT be tolerated. (Players remain committed to their existing teams until July 31, 2014, so any field activities with a new team must be done with permission of the current team).|
