Kentlake MB At International Tournament

Kentlake MB Sean Taylor is participating in the USAV International High Performance Tournament in Tucson this week as part of the US Youth Continental Team. The 29 player group features players born in 1994 and 1995 from across the US, mostly juniors and seniors with just a few to-be sophomores like Sean.

The group practiced from July 20th to July 25th and has been playing the tournament since then. They finish tomorrow with bracket play. Unfortunately her team, USA GYC Blue is only 1-5 but hopefully they will finish strong in their bracket.

Players were chosen in tryouts held in conjunction with major club tournaments throughout the country. Less than 30 players make each of the USA Youth National Team and A2 Team. The Continental Team is the third level with less than 30 players. There are no sophomores on the US YNT and only one on the YA2 Team. There are a total of six, including Sean, on the YCT.

Dead Period

Each year the first three weeks of August are decreed by WIAA to be the "dead period". Coaches can have no contact with their players. This ensures everyone is equally rusty when tryouts begin. Accordingly there will be no activities until the start of tryouts on August 22nd.

Everyone should make sure they have all of their documentation, including their physical if needed ready for the start of tryouts. Remember, no physical - no practice (or tryouts).

There will be no Falcon Days this year, so all your forms (including that important physical) should be turned in during Athletic Registration 8/16 & 8/18 from 9:00 to 12:00 and 1:00 to 3:00.

Remember, Physicians from Valley Medical Center's Clinic Network will conduct free sports physicals on Saturday, August 13 at Kentlake. Students participating in school sports are required to have a valid sports physical before competing. Physicals are good for two years except all incoming freshmen require a new physical, so normally incoming freshmen and juniors will require a new physical.


August 13
8:00 a.m. - noon
