A few things - 1) there is no tryout for barracudas. Period. Any tryout is to save face, like you said, orange to blue, blue to white, etc. 2) Active recruitment is ongoing. Tryout fees for barracudas? Try again. 3) you don't like it? Tough! if you really don't like what Express did then hurt them where it counts - the wallet. Express no longer has a stranglehold on elite tournaments, people should know this by now. Can't wait to hear about the playing time for this group - 22 kids, good luck.
