*8th and 9th graders will try out for the C team with the high school coaches beginning November 12th.  8th graders not selected, or who decline placement on the C team, will be on the 8th grade team and will be refunded the $55 difference in fees.  Players from the C team may be invited to try out for the JV/Varsity level beginning November 18th.  

**If you reside in the South Washington County Schools boundary, you will be refunded $200.  Be sure to register as early as possible because practice begins before NLA registration closes.

***Tryouts took place last spring and early this fall.  No additional positions on the team are available.  Registration is required for those who have already made the team.


Physical Examinations

If you have a new physical or are registering for the first time, please upload the physical examination file and enter the date of the physical examination during Step 4 of the Registration Process.   If your physical date has expired or will soon expire, you will be notified by the Athletic Department.

Transportation policies outlined below exist for the safety of all students and liability for families.


High School Games: Transportation is provided to most away games when the team leaves directly from school.  Athletes may ride home with their parents after a game but must check with their coach.  Occasionally there may not be a bus home from a game but that will be communicated ahead of time if the situation arises. 


Middle School Games:  Transportation is provided to most away games that begin earlier than 5:30 pm.  Parents will be responsible for their student’s transportation to any away games that begin 5:30 or later or on weekends.  There will NOT be transportation back to NLA after any middle school games.



Full Refund will be given when:

  1. A student does not make a team after the tryout process.
  2. A student elects to not participate on a team or suffers a season-ending injury within the first 7 days from the start of the season.

50% Refund will be given when:

  1. A student elects to not participate on a team or suffers a season-ending injury after the first 7 days of the season have passed but within 28 days from the start of the season.

No Refund will be given when:

  1. A student elects to not participate on a team or suffers a season-ending injury after the first 28 days of the season.
