Team & Player Certification
Rules, Guidelines, Code of Conduct
The average family will spend $150 for National Championship participation, inclusive but not limited to tryouts and team fees. This is not equal across the board and may not reflect your total spend. This average also does not include travel costs to regional rounds and Championship Week in Naples, Florida.
Players are selected based on multiple factors, one of which is not politics. In order to be considered for a National Championship team, players must attend one tryout and be selected for participation – or in some cases every tryout for that team. A player’s performance during the previous season, whether through their team and/or the prior National Championship tournament – could carry some weight in the overall selection process.
