How are Team Determinations made?

Volunteer coaches determine team compositions based on their player evaluations at Team Formation, practices, friends and family games, and previous Wolves participation.

What is Team Formation?

Team Formation is the Wolves "tryouts." Coaches will run players through a series of skills and scrimmages to evaluate players and determine roster placements for the upcoming WACH Season. All abilities are welcome! 

For the 2024-2025 Season, Team Formation will be divided into two sessions based on player skill level and/or the team in which they hope to be rostered for the upcoming season. All players must register with PPWHF  (June/July 2024) to participate and be assigned a session.

What if I'm unable to attend/miss Team Formation, but want to be rostered on a team?

No worries! Please complete your PPWHF registration and RSVP "no" to Team Formation. We will work with you to find another time to be evaluated by coaches such as a practice or Friends & Family game. If we are unable to find a time that works between Team Formation and the start of WACH Games, coaches will roster you based on previous playing experience to get started, and will reevaluate during the season to make sure you're playing at the most appropriate skill level.

When and where are WACH Games played?

The WACH regular season runs Mid-October through March with a State Tournament the first or second weekend in April.
