U14 Boys Rep Team Tryouts - On Grass

Posted by WYSC Administration at Mar 9, 2013 11:47AM PST ( 0 Comments )

Thank you to all players and parents who have attended some or all of the last 3 indoor tryouts. There is a large pool of talented players and it is almost impossible to make a final decision based on indoor conditions only. As Coach Ian had mentioned at the first tryout session, he would likely hold a final tryout on grass, that need is now more obvious. I recognize this may be short notice for some of you. It is not mandatory, but it is HIGHLY RECOMMENDED that you attend so that we may fairly assess your skills and knowledge on a full pitch.

2013/14 U14 Rep Team Tryout #4 (on Grass)

When: Wednesday March 13, 4pm – 5:30

Where: Don Ross High School- 42091 Ross, Brackendale ( parking lot next to field at the corner of Government Road on Ross Rd)

The Don Ross field is not ideal but all the Squamish fields are booked.

Who: Only players who have attended at least one of the previous session.

Bring: Grass cleats, shin pads & water.

Ride?: if you need a ride from the Whistler Area, let me know and I will try to find you a seat.

Please confirm your attendance prior to:

Many thanks, Ian Van Gruen + Crosland Doak
