The second evaluation for both boys and girls will be the following day, Sunday. This evaluation will only be for those who are looking to try out for CYO. It is advised that players attend both tryouts to be able to make a CYO level team.  Players may still be eligible to make these levels if they only attend one tryout, but it could affect their placement due to an inability to properly evaluate their skill level.
