Rain dates to be confirmed by NYSA.

* The start times above indicate the check in times for evaluations, NOT the actual start time of evaluations. Check in lasts about 20 minutes. There is NO NEED to arrive BEFORE the check in times. Players are sorted RANDOMLY into smaller groups and remain in that group the entire night.

Rain Dates: If we do get rained out, the makeup evaluations will likely be the Friday of the same week or Monday of the next week.

Make Up Dates: There are NO make up dates for NYSA evaluations unless due to rain as mentioned above.

Attendance: Players are encouraged to attend both tryout nights. Players ONLY need to attend one night to be considered for an NYSA HIgher Division Team. Players that do NOT attend evaluations are NOT eligible for NYSA higher division placement teams.
