The tryout cost is $40.00 dollars. There will be two tryouts. You must attend both of those tryouts. YOU MUST BE PRE-REGISTERED 7 DAYS BEFORE TRYOUTS ARE SCHEDULED. If you are not pre-registered you cannot try-out. No exceptions will be made. Your son or daughter will receive the following.
- 9 Tournaments with a minimum of 30 games.

This year, we will be using a hotel service to secure hotel room blocks for all NEPA Elite teams. To be eligible to play, you must use the room block that is designated. During larger tournaments, you will have several hotel options to choose from. The goal is to make the hotel reservation process easier for the NEPA Elite families and to make your stay more enjoyable, while always keeping price, location and amenities in mind.
