What is the difference between the two teams?
The FGLL classic team is a recreational team that does not record standings, does not hold playoffs and offers balanced teams of individuals of various skill levels. Play time is equal across all players. It is meant to foster growth and learning in a fun and low pressure environment. The FGLL Select team offers opportunity for competitive play among girls committed to the sport and interested in playing at a more intense level. Play time is not guaranteed to be equal.
When is Registration?
Players must try out to be selected for the Select Team. Registration for tryouts that will open towards the end of February. There will be a nominal tryout fee to cover field space and outside evaluators. All details including the tryout date and time will be included in the registration form.
