Rookie Division Draft Email

UpdatedTuesday October 26, 2021 byThe Registrar.

All Players Must Attend the Division Draft.  Please arrive no  earlier than 10 minutes prior to your assigned evaluation time pictured above.

All Players must then exit the gym immediately after their 10-12 minute evaluation. You will be notified via email of your team assignment.

We now have the 6 head coaches that we needed but we can still use 1 more assistant coach for this Division. If you haven't volunteered to coach, please consider stepping up.

Masks are required at all times in Copeland Middle School. Anyone who is unmasked will be asked to leave. The player will remove her mask when told to do so for her evaluation but must put the mask back on immediately after the evaulation.

Only 1 parent per player should attend and please leave any additional siblings at home to limit the number of attendees in the gym at one time.

Each player will run through some basic Drills and activities that will enable the coaches to assess their skill level. The selection process is used to assure that the teams are evenly matched which makes for a better playing experience. All players are drafted onto teams. Players are not assigned to teams by school or with friends.  No roster changes are allowed once the draft process has been completed.

When you arrive at the Draft, please accompany your daughter to the check in table to get her Draft number and your Fundraiser Packet. Please help her put the numbers on her shirt, front and back. Have her wear as plain a shirt as possible with no numbers on it so that her Draft Number can be seen clearly.

The Fundraiser packet is very important to our program, we ask each family to try and buy or sell at least 1 item to help keep the costs of the program at the lowest possible.

After she is checked in and has her numbers on her t-shirt, she should leave all of her things with you and proceed to the gym entrance where volunteers will be lining up the girls in preparation for their designated start time. You can wait for her in the gym.
