Register Before Your Tryout

Please make sure you register before you tryout. There are a number of reasons why we need players to register:

  • It shows a commitment of wanting to play for Cheltenham
  • Helps us anticipate turnout and manage to that
  • If we need to reschedule the tryout (due to weather, etc.) we have the ability to contact you and give an update
  • Waivers are signed online as part of the registration process and all players need to have a signed waiver prior to participating in tryouts
  • If your child is selected for the team, and have not registered/paid, our volunteer coaches are responsible for making sure your child gets registered and paid.  We'd like our volunteers to focus on the kids and not sending registration reminders.

What if I Didn't Register, Can My Player Still Come to Tryout?

Yes, but please do your best to register.  If you do not, you will need to be prepared to sign a waiver when you arrive before your son or daughter tries out.
