* Tryouts are offered in TWO waves. Wave 1 is mainly for national or top teams in each age group, while wave 2 is focused on regional teams. Wave 2 tryouts that will be decided later is highly depending on COVID-19 developments, school seasons and interest level. 
* For the safety of our players and coaching staff, if needed Academy plans to operate on a much reduced scale( Max. of 7 teams instead of 9 in the gym at a time), which will also support local small clubs to fill up their teams. Sadly, it means we might not be able to offer all or some wave 2 teams.
