Beginning June 2021, Mayhem will be offering a YEAR-AROUND travel team membership opportunity to returning athletes who have played at least one full travel team season with Mayhem prior to tryouts. Acceptance of this invitation is reserved for athletes who are ready to commit to the Mayhem Field Hockey Club for the following fall outdoor, winter indoor, and spring outdoor travel team seasons.
Athletes will still be able to commit to seasonal memberships, but with one new caveat there will be no longer be an independent tryout for participation in the Mayhem indoor travel team season, as slots will now be reserved strictly for fall travel team members. The next open tryout opportunity for new members will be in March 2022 for any remaining spots on our spring travel teams.
Not only does this new structure give families the opportunity to plan ahead, it allows the Club to run more efficiently and provide athletes with a greater sense of security, camaraderie, and familiarity within their age group, as well as guarantee them the opportunity to compete year-around.
Team rosters are not be determined until each season begins and after the staff has had an opportunity to assess the current level of play. Though age groups remain the same, rosters do vary between seasons because of the changes in roster size. Mayhem’s travel team age classifications take effect in the fall (i.e., your fall travel team age group is the same as USFHA’s winter age group classification for later that year; age groups remain the same from September through May).
