2024 Season Info:

Team Selection:  Teams for the 2024 season will be formed based on a variety of factors including, but not limited to, evaluation at August tryouts and performance during the just completed AAU season.  Players that are offered spots will be contacted by the head coach at the age level.

2024 Head Coaches:  Matt Pryor (17U 3SSB), Ellen Wiese (16U 3SSB), Courtney Edwards (16U Regional), Leah Szabla (2027), Zenise Chambers (2027), Danny Makepeace (2028), Chris Robinson (2028), Ana Garcia (2029), Bria Harlstoron (2029), Tara Starks (2030), Jamie Waldo (2030), Yazzy Sadullah (2031), Mike York (2032)

Practice:  Teams will practice on average two times per week from late March until the conclusion of the season for 90-120 minutes a time. Most practices will be held on weeknights  with dates, times, and locations set once the teams are selected.  Weekend practices are possible early in the season and weekends when tournaments are not being held.  Bloomington, Hopkins, and Eden Prairie will be our primary practice sites.

Team fees:  Team fees for the 2024 season will range between $895-$1395 based on each teams tournament schedule.  An initial $500 team fee will be due for all players upon roster acceptance.  The team fee balance will be due Feb 23rd.  Payment plans can be arranged as needed.  The team fee is non-refundable unless injury prevents player from participation in the 2024 AAU season.  The fee will cover everything except an AAU card and player expense to out-of-state tournaments.   All players will get a gear package which includes a shooting shirt and backpack which will be theirs to keep at conclusion of season.  Uniforms and practice jerseys will be turned in at the end of the season.

Tournaments:  Metro Stars teams will play in both local and regional/national tournaments based on age level and team level of play.  Our younger teams (4th-8th grade) will play in 8 local tournaments starting in early April and ending in mid-June.  Our older teams (9th grade and above) will play in 10+ events with a mix of local and regional/national tournaments with a tournament season running from early April to mid/late July .  Final tournament schedules for each team will be set by early 2024 after teams are formed and head coaches weigh in on tournament schedules.  Teams that choose to attend additional tournaments outside the set events will be asked to pay additional fees to cover registration and expenses.
