Q: I signed a commitment form with another club during their tryouts. Can I tryout or join your club?
A: NO. You are under contract and have committed to playing for that club. Some clubs try to pressure you into signing on the first day to keep you from trying out later that day or the next with another club. A club should never pressure you into signing a commitment form.
