Eighth Grade Try Out Information
2021-22 Junior Patriots Tryouts
The plan is to have two teams at each grade level with each grade level keeping approximately 20 kids (10 on each team). The Blue team will have the top 10 with the next 10 on the Red team.
*PLEASE NOTE*If you are trying out for the team, we will assume that you will play for the Jr Patriots Program. PLEASE DO NOT TRY OUT IF YOU ARE NOT PLANNING ON PLAYING WITH US. We have had some kids try out, then after making the team they said they will not play Jr Pats and thus leaving us shorthanded and another kid being left out after they have been cut from the team.
