JUNIOR OLYMPICS
The boys' Junior Olympic Tournament will take place July 20-July 23 (12U-18U) and July 25-28 (10U) and will be hosted in Orange County. Our aim is to qualify as many teams as possible in each age division. In order to participate at the Junior Olympics, teams must first qualify through our Pacific Zone qualifying tournament. See dates above for each age group's qualifying dates.

Note: All 18U, 16U and 14U teams should be prepared to participate in both weekends of JO Qualifying.

Selection to a JO team is based on, but not limited to, the following criteria: position, ability/skill level, experience, and attitude, and availability for the Qualifying Tournaments. Rosters for athletes selected to Junior Olympic teams will be posted on our web site no later than 7 days prior to the start of each athlete's respective Junior Olympic Qualifying Tournament. Teams seeded top 4 in the 14U, 16U and 18U Divisions may receive a bye, TBD, during the preliminary weekend of their age group's first weekend of zone qualifications.
