Evaluations:  These sessions are in addition to the information from prior years of play and coach evaluations.  Players are not placed solely by performance on these days.  Information related to ability, attendance, attitude, and interest is considered.  We will have player evaluations from current coaches, and other impartial coaching members of the club.  For those that have not played in the past, attending these sessions is very important.
