In an effort to start formulating teams for the 2014 Region I Tournament, coaches may begin to move players around from one group to another beginning with training on Monday, April 7, 2014. This is being done to see the players in various combinations to aid in the selections for the 2014 Region I Tournament. Players should expect to move in and out of groups at the coaches’ discretion.
Final selections to invite a player to attend the Region I Tournament will be made after the Monday, May 5, 2014 training session. These team selections will be posted on the MSYSA website by Wednesday, May 7, 2014. Players that are not invited to attend the Region I Tournament will remain a part of the pool and as such should continue to train with the pool and will attend the Region I ID Camp in July.
All players that are invited to attend the Region I Tournament after training on Monday, May 5, 2014, and that accept by submitting their payment to the MSYSA state office by the deadline, will be attending the Region I Tournament. However, coaches can move invited players from one team to another until after training on Monday, June 2, 2014. Therefore, players must maintain expected training and development standards or their team assignments may change.
