There are no tryouts in the Junior 8U League.  Teams are organized from every registered player primarily by school and / or random hat pick.  Rosters are limited in size to ensure all players have the oppurtunity to develo their skills. There are no assigned positions; all players will participate in every game and will rotate throughout the season getting to play every position at least once.
