Part-Time Travel Teams
2023 TRYOUTS
For the Spring/Summer 2023 Season

 

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.

Length of Season:  April through the end of June; the part-time travel season coexists with the regular in-house season.

Are You Interested in Becoming a
Warriors Manager for 2023?


Here's your chance to let us know…

The WAA is looking for Tournament Team Manager’s for the 2023 Spring/Summer Season.

Tournament Teams are age specific. These chosen teams of all-star players will compete in after season July tournaments as well as in a Sunday League from April to June.  

Our Tournament Teams Program is in addition to our regular in-house teams. It allows for a select group of our in-house players to experience the regular in-house season as usual, plus allowing these higher skilled players the opportunity to play at a little more competitive level with additional games throughout the season. One way to think of our Warriors team is a "Part-Time Traveling All Star Team".

While there is much more information to convey, specific details will be discussed with a final group of candidates at a later date. However, any general questions will be answered via e-mail. Along with your interest, please indicate facts that would make you the ideal candidate!

Tryouts for players will be held in July/August 2022 for a Spring/Summer 2023 Season.  If you have any questions please contact us.
