According to the school’s website, the Gold Team “is by invitation-only, as determined by the head coach. This 12-player group is comprised almost exclusively of Division I-level talent.” The Red team “is comprised of experienced players, mostly upperclassmen (11th and 12th grade). Underclassmen on the Red Team may occasionally have an opportunity to “move up” to the Gold Team the following year.” The White team “is for players not yet at the Red Team level. Seniors do not typically play on the White Team.”
