Given the number of inquiries we have received, we anticipate forming two Bantam teams. Our goal is to form a U14/Bantam Major TB team (if the talent at the final tryout warrants it) and then a second NTB U14 team or a Bantam Mixed (U13&U14) Team.
We have a couple of coach candidates for the second Bantam team and this coach will be announced after the first U14/Bantam Major team is determined. 4/27 Update: Coach Chad Fikes has agreed to coach this team.
Bantam Major U14 FINAL Tryout: Wednesday 4/26 8-9 PM 4/26 TRYOUT COMPLETED and TEAM COMMITTED
Bantam Minor U13/Bantam Mixed U13/U14/Bantam Major U14 Second Team: Wednesday 4/26 5-6 PM & Thursday 4/27 6-7 PM TRYOUTS IN PROGRESS
A Midget U16 tryout on Thursday, 4/27 from 9-10 PM has been added to finalize the selection of this team.
