Core and Support Player:
Normally we select 9-10 players on the team, and select 2-3 Support Player. This position is design to improve the player skill during the season at our practices. They are encourage to attend tournaments, but must understand that play time will be minimum. Support Players will need to be prepared to play in tournaments due to sickness, family events, injury, work, etc..., or if they impove faster than expected they can move to a Core Player. At touraments we try to get them in during regular play, but normally not during playoff or championship matches. Support Players will have to work hard in practice, and earn their spot on the court. Support Players are player that have the right attitude and work hard, but have not developed the skill that the core players have. Support Players practice with the core players to allow for 6v6 play during practice. They are treated similar to a core player, but will have limited court time due to there skill set. The coaches goal is to get them to (or beyond) the core player skillset. It is possible a support player will advance to a core player. Membership for Support Players are reduced by $100.
