LSA Policy 300.2 governs when member clubs may conduct tryouts for Classic teams. Assigning players to a recreational team on the basis of talent by the use of tryouts, invitations, recruiting or any like process is not permitted. Any type of tryout process is restricted to teams which will be playing in the LCSL or the LPDL. All teams registering in age groups 10U and younger must play at the Recreational level. Clubs are prohibited from advertising and/or conducting tryouts in order to form teams in age groups 10U and younger.
Competitive team tryouts for the following seasonal year can only be conducted by member clubs after the conclusion of all of the Louisiana state tournaments (e.g. The State Cup, Presidents Cup, Bob Abbott Cup) in which that age group shall compete.
