  • Will each player have sufficient playing time to showcase her skills?

We do our best to make sure we give players equal playing time at tournaments.  In some cases, there have been enough players to take two teams.  

  • What is the level of commitment required?

Each player and a parent must acknowledge the expectations that each player will attend practices, tournaments and team functions.  If a player is unable to make any of these commitments, she needs to notify the coaches.  

  • What assistance with the college recruitment process does the club provide to the individual player and her family?

Coaches assist players in a variety of ways, including responding to and contacting college coaches on behalf of players, completing recruiting forms, etc. and acting as a guide through the recruiting process.  Coaches are available to answer any questions the player or parent may have regarding the recruiting process.  

  • What if I am not interesting in competing at the college level, is TNLAX still for me?
