CMASS Juniors will hold team tryouts for the 2022-2023 season starting in September, 2022. Practices will not begin until mid-November.

Please read the details of each program carefully. If you can commit to the time commitment, cost of the program, and believe you can compete at that level, we welcome you to tryout.

Athletes should attend all age appropriate tryouts for the best chance of making a team. If you can’t make a tryout, please let us know as early as possible. The final session is mandatory (unless excused by a coach) so that final teams may be formed.

As in previous seasons, we will hold a ‘Skills Rating Session’ before tryouts start. U14-18 Athletes will need to attend this session, as call-back lists will be posted for players invited to tryouts.

Please note: Athletes will need to accept their CMASS Membership invite and submit a deposit/first season payment prior to the end of age tryouts. The payment is due upon acceptance (prior to leaving the tryout) and is non-refundable.

  • National (Black): $850
  • North Atlantic (Blue): $700
  • Regional (White/Gray): $550

Athletes who are not placed into the EDGE program are welcome to register for the Academy program (no tryouts required)

ALL 14 – 18 Tryouts have been completed and only our Academy program is open for such ages.
