Pony Select Tridents


This coming fall (2022), we are excited to build off the momentum of our Expanded Tridents Select Program, which now includes five teams (9u, 11u, 12u, 13u, and 14u)

Below are details for the Newport Beach Select Teams:

  • The teams will be selected, managed, and coached by hired coaches — all of whom have played professionally and are actively engaged in teaching / coaching / managing.
  • Each team will consist of 12 to 14 players.
  • Practices will start near the beginning of September and will run until Thanksgiving.  Teams will participate in either Irvine Select, CCYB, or a high school Feeder league and will play in tournaments if possible.
  • The spring season will start with tryouts in January 2023, followed by practices in February, with games and tournaments beginning in March and running through June/July.
  • During the regular season, there will be two practices and one or two games a week against other Select teams.
  • Costs for the Fall Select Season will be approximately $350/month.
