12 & Under Program

2016-2017 12 & Under Program

INFORMATIONAL SESSIONS:
  • For families/players who have never played for our club, it is an absolute necessity.  Which club to try out for is an important decision for any junior player, and--short of playing for the club in a previous year--there is no better way to understand the practices, policies and philosophy of our organization.
  • If you're a returning family/player and haven't been to an info session, it's a good idea.  We've had coaches who have been with us for several years finally attend an info meeting and universally they tell us that it was time well spent.
  • If you've played for an A5 club before and hope to play for us again, you can use your own judgment.  We are already aware of uniform changes, coaching changes and schedule adjustments that we will make known in the meetings.  That said, there won't be wholesale changes to our training philosophy and we have held the line on our budget for the past ten years, so we don't expect any significant changes on the financial side either
Informational Sessions about A5's 2016-2017 Club Season will be held on the following dates at MedAssets Auditorium (100 North Point Center E #200, Alpharetta): TBA
Sept. 18, 2015 (Sunday) at 6:00pm
Oct. 5, 2015 (Wednesday) at 7:00pm
 
You do not need to attend both sessions.  You may pick one that is convenient to your schedule.  During these general info sessions, we will have a breakout session pertaining specifically to our 12 & Under Program.

If you are unable to make the sessions above, supplemental info sessions about our 12 & Under Program will be held at the Walker School (Coles Athletic Center) in Marietta on the following dates:
Sept 25 (Sunday) 2:00-3:00pm

Tryout Dates by Age Eligibility for 2016-2017:

Historically, we have not cut any player in the 12 & Under age group.  This means all 12U/11U/10U players will make a team.  We hope not to cut anyone again this year, however please note that there could be a possibility as we may be limited in the number of teams we can field.  CLICK HERE to Register
