| What is the difference? Which one is the
right for us?
|Prep League is only an option for Players
in the 4th, 5th and 6th Grades
We have Recreational Leagues for all grades, Kindergarten to
12th. Our recreational leagues will teach players basic skills
and is intended to be informative and fun. While our leagues
are primarily comprised of Eanes Eligible students, we can accommodate
some non-Eanes students in the Recreational Leagues. The teams
are divided into divisions based on Gender and Grade. The recreational
league teams practice once a week (Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday,
or Thursday). Grades K- 6th generally play one game a week on
Saturdays. Grades 7th-12th generally play one game a week on
Sunday afternoons. Each teams Volunteer Coach will select
the practice night and time for his/her team. There is no tryout
for the Recreational League.
Each year the Divisions are determined
by the number of registrants. The most common Divisions for Girls
are: K/1st Grade; 2nd Grade; 3rd Grade; 4th/6th Grade. The most
common Divisions for the Boys are: Kindergarten; 1st Grade; 2nd
Grade, 3rd Grade; 4th Grade; 5th/6th Grade; 7th/8th Grade and
We do not keep score for K-2nd.
These teams are formed mostly by school of attendance. For Grades
3rd-8th, we do keep score and have a draft to form teams. The
Girls Divisions sometimes choose to continue forming school related
teams for the 3rd Graders; however, this must be agreed on by
the Coordinators and Coaches. Grades 9th-12th are player-coached
and teams are formed through a collaboration between the coaches
and the Coordinator. The cost of the Recreational League is listed
Games plus Tournament
Due to the Covid-19 pandemic
all tryout information is tentative. It is possible the Prep
League Tryouts will be condensed or eliminated this season.
Our Prep Leagues are for players
in the 4th, 5th, and 6th Grades. The Prep Leagues are more competitive
and have a limited number of players. Because of the limitation,
players must be Eanes Eligible Students and participate in tryouts
unless granted a waiver by the league. After the tryouts, the
volunteer coaches will hold a draft to select the players for
their teams. Players who try out but are not selected in the
Prep League drafts will be drafted onto Recreational League teams
and partial refunds will be made.
The Prep Leagues consists of 3 Divisions:
Girls Prep; Boys Junior Prep, and Boys Senior Prep. The Girls
Prep League and Boys Junior Prep Divisions consist of 6 teams
with 8 players per team. The Boys Senior Prep Division consist
of 8 teams with 8 players per team.
If a player wishes to play in the
Prep League and is unable to attend the tryouts, he/she must
notify us of the conflict in advance. Missing the tryout due
to justifiable reasons does not disqualify the player from consideration;
however, failure to notify us does. The Tryout consists of two
Boys Jr. & Sr. Prep
