Note: This year will be different and full of uncertainties and changes.  Please have patience.  We have decided not to charge for tryouts this year.  We will not be forming a team at every age group so it is possible that your child may be informed that there will be no team at his/her age group.  This will depend on tryout numbers, gym space availability, and coaching availability.  Specifically on the boys side it is probable that we will only be offering 18U, 16U and 14U teams. 15U and 13U boys are strongly encouraged to tryout for the 16U and 14U teams respectively.

Tryout times may change so please stay up to date on the postings. 

How to register for Tryouts?

Please also be aware that all athletes wishing to attend tryouts will need to do the following. There are a few extra steps to complete as we navigate the pandemic protocols.

1)  Register with SVC REGISTRATION LINK - make us aware of your intentions to tryout for  a competitive team.

2) Registration on the new OVA Membership Registration Service (MRS) site will also be required but it is currently not operational.  All registrants who have registered using the SVC registration link will be notified when this link is up and running.  If it is not operational by the weekend then all registrants will be notified regarding what further steps are required prior to tryouts.  

3) Complete a health screening questionnaire every time before coming to the Agriplex.   More Info on this to come.

4) Athletes will not be allowed to enter the Agriplex until the time of their scheduled tryout and will need to bring a mask, a filled water bottle and a zip lock bag for items  of hygiene.  Hand Sanitizer will also be required.  A complimentary hand sanitizer will be  given to those attending tryouts, one per player. Proof of completion of their health screening questionnaire will also be required (more to come on this).  

Club Fees: Given the special circumstances this year we will be charging a non refundable fee after tryouts are finished to cover our costs for the months of October and November.  There will be subsequent fees due in late November or early December depending on the pandemic situation.  Overall, fees will be less than in previous years due to pandemic related scheduling changes including the cancellation of all competitive tournament competition until at least January 1st, 2021.  More information on fees will be posted later this month.
