Open tryouts will be held for the 2019-2020 Session on July 15th & 22nd 2019. 

We hold open tryouts for anyone interested.  Below you will find our information regarding the tryout process and minimum qualifications needed to attend the tryout for each age group.

The number of open spaces varies from site to site and season to season.  Due to these variables not everyone who attends the open tryout will be offered a space with RMSC.
