Goats Team Program
The Goats team is comprised of a select group of players to maximize development and opportunity. The Goats teams practice 11 months out of the year and attend multiple out-of-town tournaments. Games are played in the spring and fall Historically our trips take us across western Canada, and into the Southern United States including California, Nevada, Arizona, Georgia, and Florida.
The roster sizes for all teams will be capped at 12 traveling (game) players and 3 practice players for the year.
For the 2023 season, we will be hosting open tryouts. We will hold a skill-based try-out as well as a game-type scrimmage between the dates of January 6th to 12th, The fee to participate in these evaluations is $105.00 which will help cover facility and instructor costs.
