Can I be considered even though I can’t make the scheduled tryout? Yes, contact the coach for that age group and see if you can make special arrangements.
When is the fee due? ASAP, at least 50% when we select you, 30 days net. No, we do not accept credit cards. Cash, money orders or checks with checks payable to Chris Marciniak or SSBC.
What is the schedule? Once teams have been picked we will try to practice twice a week in March. (Days depends on your coach) Beginning in April the teams will play weekend tournaments through the second or third weekend in May, (6-7 Events). We stay mostly local, normally within one hours drive of summit county, give or take. We would also play out of town one weekend in the spring. Possibly Columbus, Toledo, or Pittsburgh.
What if we have some conflicts along the way? Most families do have some over the course of the schedule so that’s normal. It is in the best interest of all players to make as many practices and games as possible. The more experience you have the better off you will be. We do play to win so we do want players who are committed and willing to make some sacrifice as well.
Will playing time always be equal? No, but we will encourage each coach to make sure that all players play in all games. With ten players on a team most players should see about 50 % of the game time. If it’s crunch time in a close game I feel the coach should play who he/she thinks can help the team most. Remember, getting out of your pool is the key to getting extra games.
REFUNDS? Will be looked at on a case by case basis when it comes to injury or prolonged illness. Conflicts due to schedule changes, coaching philosophy or change of mind /interest will NOT be considered.
