Q:  What are Tryouts for the Spring/Summer Season ?

A:  Most folks call them "tryouts" but they really should be called "Evaluations" because every child that registers will be placed on a team.  Evaluations are for 9-12 yr old's only.  These are held each year at the beginning of February at Ms Elite Facility located at 15 Commercial Warehouse Drive Hattiesburg, Ms. Coaches rate the ability of the players for the draft. 4-8 yr old's are not evaluated but do go thru a draft in order to be selected on a team.
