The team consists of mainly 6th through 8th graders (occasionally some 5th graders), however they never utilize 9th graders who instead participate in the team at Adlai E. Stevenson High School
Tryouts for the team begin around the middle of October, allowing up to around 32 team members in total. The varsity and junior varsity teams are altered throughout the year depending on students' performances.
You can distinguish and find them at a competition by searching for the students with dark-green jerseys with Trojan logos on them and white stripes down the sides.
