Important Notes FOR Parents
-- be sure to read the Program Explanation before bringing your son to the tryouts. You'll find it under the Travel Team Info link in the left column.
-- Check-in begins 30 minutes prior to the start of the tryouts
-- If Saturday's Tryouts should be rained out, they will be rescheduled for Sunday, same time and place.
-- Any questions, contact Stuart Spiegel, the Travel Director, at 312-726-3377
-- Tryouts for the 9 year old teams will be held in the spring after house league play has started.
-- All travel players MUST also register for and play in the 2015 house league. That registration will be held in January 2015.
Rate Your Coaches
Each year we ask parents to give us feedback by filling out a rating form about their coaches. Since we're not able to have a director observe every practice and game, your input is very helpful to us. We do read and review your comments. Also, be assured that your comments are kept confidential, even if they're about a current director.
You'll find ratings forms for both the House League and the Travel Team Coaches through the Rate the Coaches link in the left column. If your team had more than one coach and you'd like to rate each one of them please use a separate form. Also, feel free to write additional comments on the bottom and the back of the form. Thanks in advance for your feedback. We value it!!
Annual Meeting & Election
Our Annual Meeting and election of directors is scheduled for September 23rd, at 6:30PM, at the Village Green Community Center (that's the Park District Building across the street from St. Norbert's).
Anyone with a player in our league is welcome. The meeting usually begins with a State of the League presentation followed by both an Open Forum and the Election of Directors. There's seven directors up for re-election this year. The terms are all three year terms.
This is also an excellent opportunity to ask the entire board any questions you might have. They should all be there.
House League/Travel Rule Not Renewed
The Rule requiring players trying out for the 10 thru 14 year old travel teams to have played the prior year in our house league was not renewed. That means that EVERYONE is eligible to tryout for one of our travel teams, even if you didn't play in our house league in 2014. However, players selected for one of the 2015 travel teams WILL STILL BE REQUIRED to register and participate in the 2015 house league program. That registration will be held sometime in January of 2015. Questions, contact the Travel Program Director - Stuart Spiegel, at 312-726-3377.
