RELAX Spring Tryouts: Boys in 5th, 7th and 8th grade
Parents and Players,
There will be a try out for 5th, 7th, and 8th grade boys on March 2nd at the Danbury Sports Dome from 5-6 pm(6th graders will not try out at this time). If needed, another tryout date will be scheduled for a date TBD. Please arrive early so we can stretch and get going right at 5 pm. You must bring all required equipment (SNEAKERS, helmet, shoulder pads, arm pads, gloves, stick, mouth guard) as well as your numbered RELAX jersey from last season. If you do not have one yet, don't worry!
Also, there have been questions about players "switching positions". If you want to switch to a specific position (i.e defense to attack), that will be the position that you are evaluated at! If you have any questions please talk to your coach.
NOTE: CLEATS/FOOD/SPORTS DRINKS/CHEWING GUM ARE NOT ALLOWED ON THE PLAYING SURFACE!
If you have any questions regarding tryouts, please contact me (
