Who should tryout for the TRAVEL TEAM? (Please also click on link above for detailed information that is printable)
The goal of our travel program is to expose our athletes to a higher level of field hockey, grow as an athlete and have an opportunity to compete. Athletes are chosen for our travel program based on their ability level.
We think that it is important to make sure that we are choosing athletes who ability meets the level of competition that is expected at travel team tournaments and events.
How much do we practice and where?
We ask that all players tryout for our RISE travel team and are prepared to continue to practice 1 to 2 times per week in the winter and spring season.
Our Winter Season practices are Monday and Thursday at Chicago Indoor Sports. The begin in early November until end of February.
Our Spring Season practices are on Sunday afternoon at Oak Park River Forest High School. These begin in April and go through the end of May.
After conclusion of JUNE Tournaments there is no SUMMER Commitment.
