How are the House Majors and Minors teams formed?

Majors teams are selected within a tryout region by draft and independent of school or geographic region.
Minors teams are selected from within a tryout region and we attempt to place by school and/or geographic region for those that attended majors tryouts. Those that did not attend majors tryouts are placed to fill roster spots on teams.  We encourage all players to attend majors tryout evaluations to best ensure parity across our program.

When and where are tryouts for the House (Majors/Minors) program?

Tryouts are held starting the week of April 13th. 

For all the house league and tryouts details go to our House tab the select Tryouts.
