Select "My Info" and verify that all of the information is correct. If you make any changes be sure you click on the "Save" button before exiting the My Info area.

Tryout Process:
Northern Lights Tryouts will consist of:

Physical Testing
Skill Evaluation
Team Play
Player Selections

By the conclusion of the tryouts we will have selected all players for each team. At the time of selection each player & their parent will be required to submit a non-refundable deposit and sign a USAV binding commitment letter.
Pre-Tryout Skills Sessions:
For those players wishing to brush up on their skills Northern Lights is offering single day skill sessions on each Sunday starting September 28th, and going through tryouts. This is a great way for you to get to know some of our staff and see exactly how we train our players to be the best in Minnesota! For more information on these clinics, you can click here.

If you have not played in Northern Lights before we strongly urge you to attend at least one of the skills sessions. This gives the staff a chance to get to know you and your skills prior to tryouts.

Pre-Tryout Open Gym & Questions Session:
Northern Lights will host a free Open Gym for 15-18's on
Wednesday November 9 from 6-7:30pm
Northern Lights staff will be available to answer any questions you may have.
Come down and find out why our floor gives your legs the added protection that you deserve.
