Register for EVA Tryouts 2022/23 season

Tab TRYOUTS has been updated so please visit for more info on tryout necessities, protocols, and to register. 

How do we determine players jersey numbers: At tryout registration you provide three number choices. We start with your #1 choice. If another player has that same number as top choice, we look at who registered for the tryouts first (date, time). The one who registered earlier gets #1 jersey number choice! Don't wait to register!

Trust the Process: When you give your all to buy into team culture, system and goal you are trusting the process.  That's the only way to achieve great things as a team. Winning is byproduct of every team member doing all they can to be the best they can be in the role where team needs them. That is part of your trust in the process. There are no quick fixes - growth and improvement are part of the process. We develop athletes in a culture of discipline and great effort. Our training in never complete - there is always something to improve and do 1% better.  Our methods of training are always evolving and improving as we have coaches who are continuous learners.
