For this age group, CYA offers several different levels of play. Please read on for details on the different levels of play.
Middle School Girls TRAVEL team:
This is for our most advanced players and LOCAL travel around Fairfax County will be necessary. There will be one practice during the week. This practice day will be announced prior to the assessments. We may schedule additional (optional) practices if space permits. Games are on Wednesday evenings and Saturdays. Attendance at practice and games is MANDATORY! If you are unavailable for practices or games on the assigned day(s), you should not attend the assessment for this team. After assessments, refunds are not possible. Assessments date TBD.
*NOTE: Since our travel team will be working on learning more advanced rotations, playing time will not be equal.
Middle School Girls SELECT teams:
This is for more experienced players who may not have as much time, who cannot play on Wednesdays, or who do not wish to travel around the county. There will be one practice per week. Attendance at weekly practice and games is mandatory. If you are not chosen for a select team, you will be automatically placed on a house team. Please let me know prior to assessments if there are any days you are not available. This is very important because after a player is placed, it is not possible to make changes. Friend/carpool requests are not taken into consideration at this level. After assessments, refunds are not possible. MS Girls Select assessments will be held on TBD, and are mandatory for select team placement.
*NOTE: Since our select teams will be working on learning more advanced rotations, playing time will not be equal.
Middle School Girls HOUSE teams:
There will be no assessments for house teams. Players will be assigned based on their availability, so please enter any days the player is unavailable during registration or let me know asap if there are any days your player is not available for practices. This is very important because after a player is placed, it is very difficult to make changes and refunds are not possible at this point. There will be one practice per week. Games will be held on Saturdays. Once the season begins, refunds are not possible.
Each player is REQUIRED to bring a ball to practice. For this age group, we would recommend a ball similar to this:
Knee pads are strongly recommended.
Games will be on Saturdays, and can be scheduled anytime between 9am and 5pm.
