Post Tryouts/Practice Social
Once again, the Club will continue its tradition of inviting all players (new & old) to a local watering hole immediately after the STP. Bar/restaurant will be within 5-miles of the field. More information will be posted when available.
After the STP – captains for all five teams conduct a “draft” during the social. All the “horse-trading” is done during the social. Captains select based on what positions they need players at, individual skills, team chemistry, and in trying to keep friends together. Nearly all players are place on a team during this process – that day! Players will be officially notified via Facebook or email following week.
