* Tournament/Travel Teams *

Northside plans to offer tournament/travel teams for all age groups from 8u through 15u, provided we have coaches, field space, and enough players wanting to play. 

Tournament teams will meet primarily on Sundays and will either practice or play games.  We encourage kids to participate in both our recreational and tournament programs simultaneously; however, we do allow for a “Tournament Team Only” registration option.
  A recreational team alternative will be available for any child who is not selected to play on a given tournament team.  Players are allowed to play up, but should try out for any age group for wish they want to be considered.  If wishing to participate in both tournament  team and recreational ball, please sign up for your appropriate age division and indicate your desire to do both in our questionnaire. 

Tryouts for Tournament Teams will be held in mid-August.
