Division A Tryout Schedule and Guidelines

Evaluation sessions have now been set for players wishing to try out for Division A teams for the 2016 outdoor season.   Please note the following:

1.     Players must try out in their proper age group (no playing up).

2.     Players must be registered in KYSA for the 2015 season, or living within KYSA boundaries.

3.     Players must attend at least one of the three sessions to be selected.   Where numbers warrant it, cuts may be made after the second session.  Final selections will be published on the KYSA website after the regular season ends.  Two positions on each team will be reserved for final tryouts in the spring, which will be done by invitation only.

4.     Evaluations will be made by a team which will include one member of the regional Whitecaps coaching staff, the Div A head coach where appointed, and a third coach where required.

5.     A $20 tryout fee will be charged (cash or cheque to KYSA at the first session).

6.. Please preregister by emailing with the player name, birthdate, 2015 team, and preferred position(s).   This helps us anticipate numbers to ensure practices are properly organized for maximum participation.

7.     Please be there 15 minutes before scheduled start time for registration.   Dress appropriately for the weather, and bring water.

If you have any questions, please contact

Players not choosing to try out for a Division A team, or who are not selected at the tryouts, will be assigned to a team as usual during the spring registration period.
