The Travel Program (Grades 6-8) will hold tryouts by school to form the school-based teams to participate in the Loudoun County Travel League. Players will first attend the pre-season evaluations in mid-October. Qualified players then will attend travel-specific tryouts to be scheduled in late-October, and the teams will be formed in early November Participants interested in trying out for one of the school teams must attend the pre-season evaluations and at least one travel-specific tryout session, but are encouraged to attend as many sessions as possible. The school-based teams (Lunsford, Mercer and Willard) will play their games Sundays in the Loudoun County Travel League. Teams will practice one night per week and on Saturdays, with games on Sundays.
The Select Program (Grades 4-5) will not have separate tryouts. Players in grades 4-5 will attend the Pre-Season Evaluation session in mid-October. The Travel Committee will review the results and select the top scoring candidates (based on the assessment results) for each grade level (4th and 5th) to the Select Program. Teams will form and participate in an in-house select program under the Travel umbrella, with rules adjusted to a more competitive program. Teams will practice one night per week and on Saturdays, with games on Sundays.
