The Excell STORM Premier programs are designed to be highly competitive programs where players will have exposure to top-tier competition and compete at some of the top levels of play at tournaments. Many of the tournaments that our Premier Teams will attend are college recruiting tournaments where athletes can be seen by coaches from top college programs. The Premier Teams will attend 7 multi-day tournaments (2 of these tournaments are 3 day tournaments), playing against other top programs. The Premier Teams will practice 3 days a week and will aim to keep no more than 10 players to a rosters.
Please see the tentative tournament schedule for the upcoming season. As teams are formed and we register for tournaments, there may be changes in schedule if tournaments are full for certain divisions. All changes in tournaments and dates (should there be any) will be listed below.

Players will have the opportunity to be fitted for their individual gear/uniform packages at Team Signing/Gear Sizing evening. We do not ask that players be fitted for their uniforms at tryouts, because we feel the focus of tryouts should be to properly evaluate the player's skill level. Uniform sizing is done after positions have been accepted and the teams come together to have team signing and team pictures.
Team Signing Day will be announced after teams are formed. Teams will come in waves ~ exact times will be emailed to those who have accepted positions with Excell's Premier Teams.
