The Development Academy team tryouts will be by 'invitation only'.  Those current DA players, who are guaranteed a spot on next year's roster, will be given an official offer.  Academy coaches will be attending the ECNL tryouts to select the ECNL teams, so if a player who is trying out for the ECNL teams demonstrate Academy-level skills, he will be identified by a member of the Academy staff.

Bolts will offer the full range of DA teams in 2017/18
