Tryout Prep and What to Expect


Leading up to Tryouts:
> Speed, strength and agility training should be performed regularly up to and through tryouts.
> Fundamental skill work with passing, trapping and driving the ball for field players and goalkeepers. Goalkeepers should also be sufficiently fit for skill specific evaluations.
> Small sided scrimmages will be excellent preparation for similar tryout evaluation conditions.

Pre-trial Process
> Players should arrive early to tryout times in order to check-in with adequate time.
> Upon check-in, players will be sectioned off by age ranges.

Tryout Process
> One trainer will be designated for each age group.
> Trainers will run entire session while coaches evaluate. Trainers will offer evaluations as well.

Tryout Schedule
> Tryout sessions will start and end promptly.
> Tryouts will involve evaluation of technical skills, athleticism, small-sided play and possibly full-sided play.
> Some age groups may start with larger sided games.

Post Tryout Process
> Coaches and trainers will submit evaluation feedback.
> Teams will be selected by coaches.
> In cases of multiple team age groups, head coaches and Executive Board may meet to determine team placements.

Notification Process
> Player placements/cuts will usually be done through email unless no email address is available or a special condition exists. In those cases a phone call will be placed to the players' family. Thanks!
