Per the EPGBA Handbook, player eligibility is defined as follows: "Player must be a resident of the City of Eden Prairie, Minnesota, or attend an Eden Prairie Public or Private school". Any special player requests need to be submitted to the Travel VP prior to registering for the travel program. Girls are eligible to play at their grade level in school. Girls participating in the Travel Program may be asked to provide EPGBA with an accurate copy of their birth certificate and/or request proof of enrollment and grade level from each girl's school.
All girls planning to try out for a travel team, must be registered and paid for in EPGBA's system by the registration deadline. EPGBA DOES NOT accept walk-in registrations on the tryout dates. No player will be allowed to participate in tryouts until ALL fees are paid.
