    A reminder for Jersey Selection Process:

    The order of picking jerseys will be based on foot only juggling record by class. The only exceptions are for players who are able to juggle above 15. If you are able to achieve 15 or more consecutive foot only juggles during tryouts, you will bump to the front of the jersey number picking line. We will juggle every day during tryouts, records outside of tryouts will not count.

    For example, if a freshman gets 47 feet only juggles during tryouts and a sophomore gets 35 and a senior gets 16, and the rest of the players trying out get under 15: the freshman with 47 would pick their number first, then the sophomore with 35, then the senior with 16.

    For those with under 15 juggles-

    Seniors will go first, based on record highest to lowest for those between 14-1.

    Juniors go next, based on record highest to lowest for those between 14-1.

    Sophomores go next, based on record highest to lowest between 14-1.

    Freshman go last, based on record highest to lowest 14-1. 

    *If a junior, sophomore or freshman gets a score higher than a senior or someone older than them, but it is not over 15, the seniors still go first.

    Practice juggling every day!! 15 foot only juggles may seem like a lot for some, but 5-10 minutes each day from now until tryouts will easily put you on track for reaching your goal! 

    An added bonus of being able to juggle over 15, you will have checked one box required to play in a Varsity game.

    If there is a tie, the time it takes you to complete the technical test will be used to determine who picks first (the faster time goes first).
