Q. How dose Tryouts works?
A. Tryouts are conducted annually, over the course of two or three 90-minute sessions for each age group. All player candidates are asked to register and pick up a numbered bib. Players will then be organized on the field to perform various soccer drills and scrimmages. Coaches will organize the drills and perform evaluations for each player by number. At the end of all sessions, coaches will discuss the evaluation results and select players in order of choice. The ‘A’ team coach will have first choice to pick the top 12 to 18 players, after which the ‘B’ team coach will have the second choice to pick the next 12 to 18 players, etc. Players may be informed of their team selections at the end of tryouts, or they may receive a phone call or email from the coach within a few days. Selected players’ names (first name, last initial) may also be posted on our website.
