The Pacific Coast Collegiate Women’s Senior All Star team will be holding two separate tryouts to help lessen the financial burden and hopefully encourage more participation. The first camp will be held Sunday, April 15 in San Francisco and the second in Portland, Ore., April 27-28.
The Grizzlies are operating under new leadership with head coach Brandon Sparks (Berkeley), assistant coach Sharon Blaney (ORSU) and manager Phoebe Boone (Berkeley). If players can’t attend the either camp, then staff recommends submitting game film – at least one half’s worth of play, uncut, delivered by DVD or uploaded to Dropbox. Sparks indicated game film submissions should be considered last resorts, and that attending tryouts is a player’s best opportunity for selection.
“This is an All-Star team and we are looking for the best players to represent the union,” Sparks said. “The selection will not only be based on your skill level but also your fitness and desire to compete at a higher level. We encourage all serious college players to attend these camps.”
Players are not required to attend both camps, and 30 will be selected for the squad’s first scrimmage on either May 19-20 or May 26-27. A final cut will be made afterward and 23-25 players will travel to the National Collegiate All Star Championship on June 14-16 in Cheswick, Pa.
There is a one-time fee of $10 for camp attendance and game film submissions. E-mail
