CMASS Juniors will hold tryouts for both our Edge and Evolve programs starting in SEPTEMBER 2020

Our In-House Program requires registration but not tryouts.

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

Players 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, CMASS Edge will hold a ‘Skills Rating Session’ before tryouts start. Players will need to attend this session, as call-back lists will be posted for players invited to tryouts. Players called back for the last tryout will need to bring a $150 team deposit (in the form of a check) which is non-refundable and applied to the total season cost if a player is selected to a team, or returned if a player is not chosen for the team. New this year: Edge Players will need to accept their CMASS Membership invite prior to the end of tryouts.

Players who are not placed into the Edge program are encouraged to tryout for CMASS Evolve. Players who are not placed on any teams are welcome to register for the In-House program.
