As described further below, all players attempting to make a select team should attempt to attend a minimum of 3 tryouts prior to the final selection of teams – please see attendance guidelines below.The selection of players for all Select Teams is at the sole discretion of the team’s Head Coach.
McLean Select wants to increase the number of players coming out to play basketball every year, and the coaches understand that they must provide a positive, interesting, competitive and fair try-out for all the players – please have your player try-out!
