Our Position-Specific try-out dates are listed above. Times listed to the left under Tryouts. Our Try-Out process is one of the area's best and truly allows your daughter to be evaluated by position and area of strength. We typically have 2 court managers and 3-5 sets of eyes on each court during the entire process.
All try-outs will be held at our "NEW" training center in Germantown, Wisconsin. For more information, including our address, directions and pictures, visit the training centers tab to the left.
- This year's try-outs will be "Closed" due to our capacity restrictions and to alleviate pressure on these athletes.
- Parents should drop their daughter's off with all necessary paperwork and pick them up after try-outs are over.
- Athletes that "Earn" top honors each day within the try-out process will be asked to stay and invite their parents in.
- Be prepared to discuss team strength, tournament schedules, practice dates, club dues, etc (research all clubs prior).
- Athletes should be persistent and remain attending as many try-outs as it takes to earn a spot on our roster.
- If there are any overlaps with try-outs, prioritize on what is best for your daughter and consider putting us 1st.
- Best wishes to all during this year's try-out process. Lets make it enjoyable for all!!!
