In 2018 KVGSA will be sponsoring 4 Travel teams. They are called the KV Dynamite and are for girls at the U12, U14, U16 and U19 age divisions.
U12 - born 2006, 2007
U14 - born 2004, 2005
U16 - born 2002, 2003
U19 - born 1999, 2000, 2001
Training begins in February indoors and play starts in June. Teams will be picked before the end of May for the 2018 playing season. You must sign up on-line to participate in these tryouts. KVGSA Registration must also be completed and paid prior to the teams being selected. This team will practice at a minimum twice a week and play at a minimum 2 weekends every month. Travel is required to Nova Scotia, Prince Edward Island and New Brunswick. The travel schedules for the 2018 season will be distributed to the teams in June by the Team Manager.
On a travel team we look for girls that will provide leadership to the team, demonstrate good sportsmanship and have a positive attitude. 8 Travel Team players are selected by 2 independent evaluators, and the final 4 players are chosen by the head coach. Underage players wishing to play outside of their age division must be selected by the evaluators and be in the top 8 players selected. Underage players cannot be selected in the bottom 4.
Anyone that resides in Region 4 (Sussex to Saint Stephen) is eligible to try out for a KV Dynamite Travel Team.
Complete information regarding Travel Team participation can be found in the Dynamite Document found attached to the right of this page.
Head Coaches and Managers are selected by the Executive Board during the winter and once tryouts are completed in the Spring, up to 2 assistant coaches will be named.
All players must pay their KVGSA registration fee and there is also an additional cost associated with the Travel Team to cover the cost of tournament fees, umpires and uniforms. Cost is approximately $150.00
