11-19u teams are formed by a tryout process each June for the following year (Fall and Spring seasons). 11-15u teams play both Fall and Spring. We only provide a season for 16-19u teams in the Fall. Players may join teams outside of the normal process or at the Spring season by contacting the respective age group director:
11/12u Technical Director - Nick Kyras - firstname.lastname@example.org
13-19u Girls Technical Director - Matt Laczniak - email@example.com
13-19u Boys Technical Director - Ollie Johnston - firstname.lastname@example.org
U11-U12 - $500 per season ($1000 Total)
U13-U14 - $550 per season ($1100 Total)
U15-U19 - $595 per season (Fall only 16u-19u)
Each season, there will also be a "team fee" to pay for tournament entry fees and coach travel expenses. These tend to be around $150-200 per season, depending on the number of tournaments the team enters. These fees will be added to your Demosphere account and paid through that system.
