Q: When does the season start and end?
A: The boy's club season starts the end of September and goes through February. The girl's club season starts in November and goes through May. For more specific dates, check the Calendar.
Q: What are the differences between National, Regional, and Non-Competition Teams?
A: Non-Competition teams practice once a week and do not play in tournaments, but are still part of the club and receive the same level of coaching that every other team does. Regional teams attend local one day tournaments about once a month during the season. National teams attend weekend long tournaments as well as AAU Nationals and will continue to practice through June.
Q: How often are practices?
A: Practices are twice a week for two hours each. Practices will be either Monday/Wednesday or Tuesday/Thursday depending on the team they are on.
Q: Which nights will my team practice?
A: Practice nights will be assigned after tryouts. This is so we can have similarly skilled teams practicing on the same night and we will not know team composition until after tryouts.
Q: Where are practices?
A: Practices are held at XL Sports in Cherry Hill. Depending on how many teams are in the club, Eastern High School is also used as an alternate site.
Q: If everyone who tries out makes a team why are there tryouts?
A: The tryouts are used to evaluate players in an effort to build the most competitive teams possible. After tryouts all players will be placed on a team according to their abilities.
Q: How many tournaments are there and where are they?
A: Each team goes to five tournaments and typically one a month. Tournaments are typically in Pennsylvania about two hours from the Cherry Hill area.
Q: What does a typical tournament look like?
A: A typical tournament will start off with pool play where we will play each team in our pool. The top teams from pool play will then advance to playoffs and compete in single elimination bracket play.
