Practice Player Information

Practice players are players who are are able to practice with a team and attend all activities that the team is doing; however they are not committed or expected to travel to the tournaments.

Practice players will be required to attend all practices and functions and will pay the required amount depending on level of team they are playing with. 

Practice players may be asked to attend a tournament if the team is missing specific players or positions that make it difficult to complete all rotations. They do not have to attend if they are asked, but the possibility of going is left up to the player and parents. If a player attends more than two tournaments, the players fee will be that of a regular season player and will be billed accordingly. 

Practice player fees are found in each age groups packet and is dependent on the level of team the player is a part of.
