This team is for players with high school graduation years of 2024 and 2025, which is presently equivalent to 4th and 5th grade. However, this is not a 4/5 team. In the Fall of 2017, when the new school year starts and the girls move up to 5th and 6th grade respectively, it will still be the same team. It is common practice at many tournaments for teams to be structured by high school graduating year, and as the program grows we anticipate going to a single year system, so 2024 and 2025 will be their own teams. That is how the boys travel teams are organized.
Participation is by INVITATION ONLY. There are no tryouts.
Over the last 12 months we have trained many athletic, talented and hard working girls in this age group whom we believe represent the future of the Fire program! We're excited to take these girls to the next level of development and competition. The Fire Middle School team has an ANNUAL schedule consisting of 3 tournaments for the 2017-2018 Season.
The benefit of the annual schedule is that players only have to try out once and then stay together for the year until the next cycle starts.
It also allows us to offer a top-level program with concentrations during the year, but to also leave plenty of time for the many other activities our busy girls are involved in.
Fire 2024/25 will play one tournament every season until Winter 2018 and have 6 practices before each tournament. In the summer of 2018 this program will reset and we’ll offer an additional tournament or two in the summer, as well as the winter. By its third year we expect Fire 2024/25 to be on the same cycle as Fire High School. Please keep in mind that Fire is a complement to, and not a replacement for the regular winter and spring seasons, which is when we provide the bulk of our training. Fire events do not conflict with Dragons practices.
