About The Turkey Tournament Program
Turkey Tournaments take place over Thanksgiving weekend. All tournaments have games on Friday and Saturday. Some also have games on Sunday. Players from divisions U10 and above are eligible to participate.
Turkey Team Selection:
Turkey teams will be selected at the end of October and the teams will be announced in the first week of November. Turkey team coaches will select players from the Fall Skills/Scrimmage (APO) program. The children of our most active volunteers will be given special consideration. Participation in the APO Program is not a free pass to a Turkey, All Star or Spring team. Likewise, players who have not participated in APO Program are still eligible to play in the tournaments. Selection Criteria.
Turkey Team Practices:Practices will run through the month of November until Thanksgiving weekend. There will usually be one practice on a weeknight and a scrimmage or practice on Sunday. But this will depend on the coach’s availability. Regular season team practices and games take precedence. Players are not allowed to skip regular season games or practices in favor of their Turkey team.
