Boys spring/summer player Evaluations

8U and 10U teams do not have tryouts/evaluations.  Teams are picked by friend/carpool requests only.  No skill is evaluated. 

U12 and U14 are the only age groups that have A teams.  After the first two dates of tryouts, A teams and B teams will be formed. B teams will be made as equally as possible. All players are required to attend. These evaluations are considered practices as well. See information above for dates. B teams will be picked by friend/carpool requests and grade level to equal out teams by ability. 

Don't have the desire to tryout for the A Team? Tryouts are not mandatory.  We will have tryouts for those that want to tryout and practice at the same time for kids not trying out. 

If you have any questions, please feel free to email Ty Raleigh, WBLAX Boys Director at tyraleigh@gmail.com.
