Q: How do I know whether my child made the team or not? A: Dunedin staff and coaches will email out the results of each night’s tryouts to every player within 24-48 hours of each tryout. Should you not receive an email within 48 hours since the tryout, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Q: How many players will you pick for my child’s team? A: That will depend on your child’s age group. Generally speaking, teams that play 7v7 (U9 & U10) will have a roster size of 11 to 12, 9v9 teams (U11 & U12) will have 14 to 15, 11v11 teams age U13 - U15 will have 16 to 20, with U16 - U19 teams having 18 - 24. The reason for larger squads at older ages is that (a) there are more frequent injuries, especially after the high school season as well as (b) more academic and off-field commitments.
