March 26: Tryouts for U-17, U-16 and U-15 Mid-Michigan Lakers

tshirtfront-1Tryouts for our U-17, U-16 and U-15 teams will be held March 26 at Mott Community College. Tryouts will begin at 6:30 p.m. but players should arrive 15 minutes early to stretch. Arriving late will diminish your chances of making a team, no different than showing up late for a job interview. (Scroll down for Mott’s campus map).

The cost of the tryout remains $10.

The team fee for the spring/summer will be $450 ($400 for any returning player who does not require a new uniform). Players are not required to make the full payment up front, but at least half of the season fee is due prior to the start of the first tournament.

Typically, teams practice 1-2 times per week for two hours either at Mott, The Cage Fieldhouse or Central Church of the Nazarene in Flint. Practice schedules are posted weekly.

We will update the schedule in the coming days. I can assure you, however, that we will play in the Up North Challenge April 12-14, as we are the defending U-17 champions. Typically we compete in seven tournaments including NCAA certified events in July.

Marcellus Miller will return as coach of the u-17 team and Chris Hutton Sr. will move up to coach u-16. Andrew Bolton, U-16 assistant from last season, will coach U-15. Jim Pope will serve as an assistant for Coach Miller and will also assist me in ramping up the marketing of our teams to colleges.

Looking forward to a great season,
