Tryout & Season Information

TRYOUT EVALUATIONS: Register above to attend our tryouts July 8 & 9. 

As our Starz program continues to grow, we are making adjustments on how teams are formed. This year, we will have two tryouts, one on July 8th or 9th {depending on age} & the second will be our traditional tryout on September 15 for grade school & November 3, for high school. 

We will be offering spots in our program to athletes after the tryout, but actual team rosters will not be formed until two weeks after regular practices have started. We recommend athletes attend the early tryouts, but athletes who can't make the early tryout are welcome to come to the traditional tryout. 

Also this year, we are offering an opportunity to play on a National team for an extended season. A tryout will be held for those teams towards the end of our regular season. Those teams will compete in the AAU nationals in Florida in June, and or other national level tournaments. Any Starz player who had a higher than 90% attendance during the regular season, will be eligible to try out for those teams. We likely will only field one team per age division.

  • After the tryout evaluation, parents will be sent an email, letting them know if their daughter, or son, is being offered a spot in our Club. 
  • Registration instructions will be included in that email. 

Call Chuck at 815-509-1339 with any questions.
