The majority of the tournaments that the 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 (3 of these are 3 day tournaments),  playing against other top National programs.  The PREMIER teams practice 3 days a week. The PREMIER teams will aim to keep 10 players (per team) and have the expectations of going to Nationals as the end of season.

Team Signing Day

Players will have the opportunity to be fitted for their individual gear/uniform packages at Team Signing 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 is Thursday, November 15th.  Teams will come in waves ~ exact times have been emailed to those who have accepted positions with Excell.  Team Signing Day will be at Bridgeway Christian Academy on Garlington Road.
