Premier Academy Overview | U13 - U19

Team Selection Process

The Premier Academy tryouts take place prior to our Junior and Senior Academy tryouts.  When registering you still register for Junior or Senior Academy, then if you’re selected to a team following tryouts you will be invited to join the Premier Academy team.  Players who are not selected to the team would then attend their location based Junior or Senior Academy tryout.  You only have to register once and that fee will cover you for the Premier and Jr./Sr. Academy tryouts if you are not selected to a Premier Academy team.  Players who are not interested in the Premier Academy or cannot make the commitment to the team do not have to try out for the Premier Academy, they can just attend their Junior or Senior Academy tryout.
