Tryout Candidates Boys Summer (2017, 2018, 2019 Teams)

To All Tryout Candidates:

We first want to thank you all for being part of a record number of tryout participants in the boy’s program this fall.  We realize that the landscape of the club programming has changed dramatically since our inception and we are cognizant of your desire to participate in a top program and for a top level team.

We have been finalizing our rosters for the top teams in each grad year and have worked hard to build competitive, balanced teams in each level.  We are still in the process of receiving commitments and therefore want you all to know that many of the rosters are not complete and that we plan to have call backs and/or a second round of tryouts for the open spots.  If you have not been contacted, please hold tight and wait for us to let you know where you stand.

Second Round of Tryouts

It is also our intention to utilize the second round of tryouts to gauge the interest in building second teams in certain grad year groups, particularly the 2017, 2018 & 2019 teams.    The past practice was to select bubble players from the original tryouts and build from there.  This year, we are taking a much more thorough look at talent by starting from scratch and building a new team from completely new tryouts.  We still have the original evaluations from our first selection process, but this is an opportunity to showcase again, while also inviting players who did not tryout with Chargers the first time.  We believe this will provide us with the most talented group of players still available and interested,  making the entire team a higher level group.

When and Where:

If you are a registered player who paid and tried out the first time, there is no additional charge for these second round tryouts, but we would expect you to attend at least one.  Those trying out for the first time must go on-line and register and pay the $75 tryout fee.

Two separate tryouts will be held for the 2018 and 2019 teams on Wednesday October 1st and Wednesday October 8th at Sono Field House from 7:30-8:30PM. 

Tryouts for the 2017 team with be held on Sunday, October 5th and Sunday October, 12th from 5:00-6:30PM.

Second Round of Tryouts

It is our intention to utilize the second round of tryouts to finish building the most competitive teams we can in the 2020-2023 grad years and also gauge the interest in building second teams in certain grad year groups.    We still have the original evaluations from our first selection process, but this is an opportunity to showcase again, while also inviting players who did not tryout with Chargers the first time.  We believe this will provide us with the most talented group of players still available and interested, making the entire team a higher level group. In addition we will also offering a 3 week Lightening “House” League & Clinics available to any player that is interested. Please see below.

When and Where

Two separate tryouts will be held for the 2022 and 2023 Teams on Saturday, November 29th and December 6th at Sono Field House from 3:30-4:30PM.  Tryouts for the 2020 and 2021 teams will be held on the same days, but from 4:30-5:30PM at Sono Field House. If you are a registered player who paid and tried out the first time, there is no additional charge for these second round tryouts, but we would expect you to attend at least one.  Those trying out for the first time must go online and register and pay the $75 tryout fee.

Boys 2014 Tryouts Update

Ct Charger 2014/2015 Boys Teams are in the processes of being finalized and announced.  We are trying to manage this process to build the most competitive teams we can.  We realize that many players have tried out for multiple teams and are weighing their options.  We have already made it clear that we think the Chargers is the team to choose, but unfortunately this selection process and getting commitments from players will take time to actually finalize the rosters.

 

We are not posting rosters for that reason.  We will be e-mailing and calling players/parents of players that are being offered spots on teams over the next few days. We are hesitant to “force” players to make a decision on the spot, but in fairness to others waiting for these coveted spots we are going to require a commitment by September 22nd to allow us to be ready for our first official fall practices.  We will expect a $500 non-refundable deposit by September 30th to hold your spot in the program.

 

To those players/parents that do not receive a phone call/e-mail by this weekend please understand that this does not mean the player has definitely not made the team.  We will clearly have to offer spots to players off our waitlist as we have players opt out of their position in the program.  We will do this in a timely manner next week.  We also will consider building a second team from players off the waitlist if there is a strong enough interest in the grad years that we had a large turnout for tryouts.  We will send an e-mail to get a pulse on the interest on this as well.

 

Thank You for your interest in the Charger Program and for your patience with this selection process.

 

Practice/clinic tonight at the Sono Fieldhouse for those that have already been selected and told there was practice.

2018/2019 - Wednesdays 6:30-7:30
2017/2016 - Wednesdays 7:30-8:30

We will be holding additional practices prior to the Fall Tournaments on November 8th and 15th, at 3:30 - 5:30pm at the SoNo Fieldhouse. More weekend practices to be announced.

  • College Recruiting Information Night (Fall) with a night for each class (2018 class, 2017 class, and 2016 class)
