Tryouts

Initial Tryout

 

Participation on our club teams is through a tryout basis. Tryouts are usually held in the middle of November.

 

Tryout information for 2019 is now posted! Click the button below to view the Tryout Flyer.

Secondary Evaluation

 

Once we select players from the first try-outs, a call-back list will be posted to this website indicating the players who are invited back for a second round of evaluations. At the secondary evaluation, we look at players by position before placing them within specific divisions and drafting them onto teams.

 

At the second evaluations, players bring paperwork that includes: medical history, the MSVB financial contract, and a deposit. If a player is not selected at the second round of evaluations, their paperwork is shredded. Players who are selected get their check deposited and paperwork processed.

 

We select a large number of players from the tryouts, though we do have to cut a number of players. Players are drafted onto even teams into the following divisions:

 

U18 – Varsity Gold & Varsity Silver
Varsity Silver – 4 teams of high school players
JV Gold & Silver – 4 or 6 teams of high school players

 

Youth 14s – for 8th & 9th graders
Youth 13/14 – for a combination of 7th and less-experienced 8th graders
Youth 12/13 – for less-experienced 6th & 7th graders

 

PRACTICES

For players selected at tryouts and drafted onto a Midnight Sun team, we use AT&T Sports Pavilion for tournaments & practices and The Center for practice. Practices are twice a week starting at 4:30 or 5 with the late practices starting at 7:00. Practices can be held on any weekday or Saturday. Once we set the times and days of the week for practices, we do not change them unless we have a crisis with gym time, which is very rare. We practice up to the start of Christmas break, resume practices at the end of the break, and go strong up to Spring Break and then finish up the first week in April.
