How to get involved with WCSG:
Tryouts - First tryouts typically occur between one and two years prior to the date of the WCSG for the purpose of scouting and developing a large group of athletes. Notices of tryouts and upcoming events are sent to all members of MBA. Information is always posted on our website and available to the public. On occasion MBA will use promotional material for tryouts and other important events.
Team Positions - Notices of team positions available are once again posted on our website and emails are sent out to all MBA members.
Start training! Just because the next WCSG is four years away, doesn't mean you should wait around! Get on the court and we hope to see you in four years!
