Open House and Tryouts

Open House Period – The Arizona Region has established an Open House Period for players and their parents to visit different clubs in an attempt to decide which club to tryout and join for the 2019-20 season. The Open House Period is a 10-day period prior to the specific age group tryouts. 

During the Open House Period a club may offer a maximum of 3 Open House sessions for each age group that is not more than 2 hours in length. The club MAY evaluate potential club members by running them through skills tests and physical tests, MAY talk to the players and their parents about their club, and MAY let you know about what level you might fit into in their club. The club MAY NOT offer (verbal, written, or implied) a player a position on any of their teams, MAY NOT collect any commitment fees or down payments to hold a spot on their team, MAY NOT ask a player for a commitment prior to tryouts, and MAY NOT require you to attend more than one Open House session at their club. 

The Open House Period is for the player to find out the club they want to join PRIOR to tryouts. Remember that just because a club says they want you to join their club does not mean it is the right place for you. Ask questions, talk to potential coaches, watch how they interact with your player. 

Pre-Tryout Requirement – All individuals must register or renew their Arizona Region membership online for the 2019 season PRIOR to the Open House evaluation sessions and Tryouts. You must provide the club with your 2019 membership card or PAID confirmation page that shows you have registered for the 2019 season in order to tryout with any club. 

Age Eligibility – Not sure what age category you must play, enter your birthdate here and find out.
