Headlines & News

 

For the 2017 Season we will be having our 12U Warriors Tryouts earlier than usual and Dave Whitman has accepted the Manager position for the 2017 12U Warrior team. 

If interested in joining the 2017 12U Warriors, try-outs will be held on the following dates:

  • Saturday 9/17/2016, 10am-12pm at Orchard 2
  • Saturday, 9/24/2016, 10am-12pm at Orchard 2

Any questions please contact Dave Whitman

 

For our in-house players looking to play a few more games at a more competitive level we offer our Warriors Tournament Team Program. Our Tournament Teams, sometimes referred to as "In-House All Star Teams" or "Part-Time Travel Teams", consist of elite in-house players that are looking to join a second, more intense and competitive team. Tournament Team Members, both players and coaches, are expected to put forth considerable time, effort and commitment beyond that for a typical regular season team.  Players must also be enrolled in the regular WAA in-house season.
