LSA Policy 300.2 governs when member clubs may conduct tryouts for Classic teams. Any team assigning players on the basis of talent by the use of tryouts, invitations, recruiting or any like process shall be considered a Classic team. Clubs are prohibited from advertising and/or conducting tryouts in order to form teams in age groups 10U and younger.
Classic 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.
