Tryout by Video


Welcome to the CEA Family,

We are so excited for this season and look forward to receiving your video tryout no later than midnight on Friday May 17th!  You must be registered in order for our staff to view your video submission.  Please join the class in our portal labeled “Video Tryout”. Registration link  

We prefer YouTube links for your videos as they are easiest to view.  Sending individual videos of each skill takes a lot of time to upload and view.

As we go through submissions, we will reach out to the contact provided from registration if we need more information. You can check the website on Sunday May 19th by midnight to find your team evaluation day and time for the following week.  If you are not able to make your practice, email us and let us know when you are available to come to the gym.  The Teal Reveal results will also be posted on the website on Friday June 14th by midnight for those unable to attend in person.

Send in a skills video any time between now and May 17th to Coach Chase at and we will respond within a week to let you know if we can offer you a spot on our upcoming roster based on your video.  No registration required for this process.
