ST7 Tryout Guidelines for Current ST7 Members


Current ST7 members must complete all of the tryout requirements found below with the exception of providing a copy of the birth certificate. We have retained a copy of any 2018- 2019 club member's birth certificate on file. ST7 reserves the right to refuse re-enrollment to athletes with poor discipline, attendance records or conduct detrimental to the team. Re-enrollment may also be refused to athletes or parents/legal guardians who have demonstrated disharmony regarding the purpose, objectives, standards, policies, rules or regulations of the club. In addition, athletes will not be re-enrolled until all financial obligations for the athlete or any immediate family member of the athlete are brought current. Any athlete who left a previous season without completing their financial obligations or the financial obligations of an immediate family member will have to pay any outstanding balance and pay at least half of the upcoming mini club season’s fees in order to be re-signed.

Then ask this question: How old will my child be on September 1, 2020? Remember this is next year 2020. The answer is the age group you should register for. Example: Amanda is 14 years old right now but her birthday is in January. So, by September 1st of 2020 she will have turned 15. Therefore she will need to register and play in the 15U team.
