MN Chill Boys Tryout FAQs

Tryout Structure

All players will try out for their graduation year team (2024- 2029) except for 12U and 10U, which are made up of multiple grad years ( 12U = 2030 & 2031' grad years and 10U = 2032, 2033, & 2034 grad years) 

If a player is not selected to a graduation year team, they will be placed on one of the following teams (if numbers allow):

  • High School Select (2024-2027 Grad Years)
  • 14U Select (2028 & 2029 Grad Years)

We typically do not make cuts to our program. We want all players to have the opportunity to experience our program and grow with us together. More information regarding team makeup can be found in the FAQ section below.

Tryout FAQ's

Am I supposed to attend both tryout sessions?

Yes. Coaches and evaluators prefer seeing players more than once before making a decision on team/roster placement. 

What if I can only make it to one tryout session?

If you cannot make it to one of the tryout sessions, you will be evaluated based on the tryout session that you attended. We try our best to present a diverse set of drills to make sure all players can be evaluated fairly based off a single day if needed.

What if I cannot make it to EITHER tryout session?

If you cannot make it to tryouts at all, we will look to schedule a make-up day, or use a coaches recommendation for which level of play you would be best suited at.

What am I being evaluated on?

Our evaluation process covers the following categories:

Character, Confidence, Community

Effective Communication

Field Awareness

Effective Agility & Power

Ground Balls

Handling (Catching/Cradling)

Throwing (Passing/Shooting)


What team am I trying out for?

All players will try out for their graduation year team. For example, if you are a 2025 high school graduate, you will try out for the 2025 MN Chill team, and so on. This applies to all teams, besides the 12U and 10U teams, which will be made up of multiple graduation years (12U = 2030/2031, 10U = 2032/2033/2034). The full list of graduation year teams is listed below.

What happens if I am not selected for a graduation year team?

If you are not selected for a graduation year team, you will be placed on one of our ‘Select Teams’. The MN Chill Select Teams are made up of multiple graduation years and are at the high school and 14U levels. The select teams we are planning on having this year are as follows:

MN Chill 14U Select (2028-2029 players)

MN Chill HS Select (2024-2027 players)

If numbers allow, we will break the high school group into two teams; 18U Select (2024-2025 grad years) and 16U Select (2026-2027 grad years).

When do I find out what team I made?

Final team rosters and selections will be emailed within three days of the final tryout. 

How long do I have to accept a roster spot?

We ask that you decide whether to accept the roster spot within 48 hours of receiving the invitation. Failure to do so could result in your roster spot being forfeited to another player looking to join the team. 

Where can I find more information about schedules, the program, and my team?

Team breakdowns, schedules, coaching staff, and more can be found on our MN Chill Team Homepages on our website. Each page will have specific information for that team.  

What seasons am I trying out for? 

The MN Chill offers year-round programming for all teams. When you try out, you are trying out for the Fall, Winter, and Summer seasons. In tryout registration, you will have the option to choose which seasons you plan on participating in. Please be sure to answer this section AS ACCURATELY AS POSSIBLE. This will be taken into account by our evaluators when making final roster decisions. We aim to have full rosters for each season, so this information helps balance teams for the entire year. Below are the season options available for players to opt-into:

Fall, Winter, & Summer (All Seasons)

Fall/Winter Only
