All players that intend to tryout for Cougars Select must register prior to the tryout date. There is no cost to tryout and players that are not selected to join a Cougars Select team may opt to join a Cougars Rec team at their grade level. All players trying out should arrive 10 minutes before the tryout begins and check in with the coach or parent volunteer. All players must wear appropriate athletic apparel to tryouts: shorts, t-shirt and athletic sneakers. Anyone who would like more information or is unsure what level is right for their player, may contact the commissioner for more details and a recommendation of the proper level for their player. You can also visit the PLAY DSA BASKETBALL tab to get more details on the differences between Cougars Rec & Cougars Select team options. See the table below for tryout date and times.
Cougars Select Winter 2019-2020 Season Tryouts
*7th & 8th Grade Girls Tryout #2
*We will be holding a joint tryout for 7th & 8th grade girls. It will be our goal to field the most competitive team possible. Montgomery County Rising Star often combines grade level divisions on the girls side, making it difficult for certain groups to be competitive when formed with a single grade level. After the combined tryout, coaches and the commissioner will make a decision on if we will form a combined team or separate the teams by grade level. The current plan is to hold the 5th grade & 6th grade girls tryouts on separate nights as listed.
