Team Selection Process

All players interested in playing on an SLYB travel league team must attend tryouts held in October.  Tryout dates, times and locations will be posted on this website. Teams will be formed based upon the players grade level for that season and talent level.   There are a limited number of roster spots and those that are not assigned to a team are encouraged to register in the SLYB Recreation League.  Click here to download the process: SLYB_Player_Selection_Process.doc

Coach Selection Process / Playing Time Policies



Practices and Games

Practices are held once or twice per week (typically twice per week before games start and once per week after games start), normally on week nights, but ultimately at the discretion of the individual coach.  One or two games are normally played per week, depending on the league entered.  League games can be held on both weekends and week nights though most leagues typically have games on weekends.  Each travel team for no additional cost will also be entered into 2 weekend tournaments, dates and times TBD.  Playoff games are also possible depending on team record and the individual leagues playoff rules.

Recreation Program Policy

We do not require travel players to play in the recreation program but it is highly encouraged.
