I am new to 11U, can you give me a run down of how it works?

REP

11U AA Gold

This is our top rep team at this level.  Tryouts occur for the team in mid-March and the season finishes the third week of July.  Games and practices can occur on any day of the week and games and travel tend to occur on the weekends.  Traditionally, this team has practices or games 4-5 times per week.  The team plays under the Sherwood Park Athletics banner and usually competes in Baseball Alberta's tier one division.  Additional cost tends to be around $1000 - $1500 for the entire season.  The team also tends to be made up of majority second year players (10 year old turning 11)  This team also participates in tournaments on non-play weekends, like July long weekend in Kamloops.

COMMUNITY LEAGUE

11U YEGA League Teams

This our our competitive stream for community league.  Tryouts will occur for these teams in April and one to three teams will be formed depending on numbers.  Games and practices occur on weeknights (Mon-Thurs) making this competitive stream work very well for spring hockey players.  The teams will play in the Baseball Alberta YEGA League against other local organizations, such as, Beaumont and Leduc.  The teams will play under the Sherwood Park Archers or Strathcona Pirates Banner.  If athletes try out and do not make one of the teams, they will be returned to a Community League Team noted below.
