SMS Travel Program has a policy of age appropriate play, meaning players will try out and play on age. 

During the tryout process players are evaluated by a panel of coaches and if a player is identified by the evaluating panel as having the potential of playing one age group up they will make the appropriate recommendation to the SMS Travel Program Vice President during the day’s evaluation recap.  If the SMS Travel Program Vice President agrees with the recommendation the player will be contacted to determine interest in this opportunity.  Once made, the decision is final.

NOTE: Underage players are NOT eligible to play on a "B" Classic team.
