Special Notes (This applies to all players):

  1. **Please arrive at tryouts at least 30-45 minutes prior to the starting time to turn in all registration paperwork and be assigned a tryout t-shirt.
  2. If you wish to play for a National team, we encourage you to participate in the National A2 tryout in Lewis Center.  If there is adequate representation from A2 East to form a National team and train out of TAD Sports, we will consider that at the time of tryouts.  We have added a check box on the A2 Lewis Center registration form to state that your main interest is still playing out of A2 East, but plan to participate in the A2 Lewis Center tryout.  Also, if you plan to tryout at both locations, please note that in the Additional Notes section and the fee will only be $10 (to cover the cost of the tryout t-shirt).
  3. Players needing to leave early for Awards ceremonies are free to do so, but should inform us in advance.
  4. Please attend the tryout for the highest level you wish to compete.
  5. All tryouts will take place at TAD Sports

2019-2020 OVR Age Definitions

At A2 East, all Regional teams will use Grade Level definition for ages where required.  Some American teams could use “traditional” or “true age” level definitions since this is required for larger, national tournaments. Any player wishing to be considered for an American team that would only qualify for that age group based on the Grade level definition should note that in their registration entry form. For further details on age level definitions, refer to the OVR age definition page. A2 has also created an FAQ page to explain some of the nuances regarding age levels in a little more detail.
