Ladies,

Final (really final) details for tryouts:

Sunday, April 28th @ UCC 3-6pm - Capitals (invite only) and Terra
Tuesday, April 30th @ Monarch 7 - 8:30pm - Lotus/Lily
Tuesday, April 30th @ Monarch 8:30 - 10pm - Capitals/Terra
Saturday, May 4th @ Lamport 9am - 12pm - Lotus/Lily/Juniors

You are encouraged to attend all time slots that are associated with the team(s) you are trying out for.

For example, if you are trying out for Caps only, you would come Sunday and Tuesday (8:30-10).
If you are trying out for Caps + Lotus, you would attend all 4 tryouts.

- Warm-ups - please come 30 minutes prior to the tryout time to warm-up PRIOR to the time slot. At Monarch, runners would be good to warmup on the track.

- Bring your own water! We will not be providing water.

- Please bring a dark and a light. If you can bring a numbered jersey, that will help the selection committee immensely.

- PAYMENTS! If you haven't already paid, please do so. We are not interested in collecting cash at the fields.

See you on the field!
