â€‹Note: Players may or may not be given a numbered scrimmage vest to wear during hte tryout. If they are given a numbered vest, they should wear the vest for the entire session unless told otherwise by the lead coach running the tryout session. If given vests, players should wear the same vests for any additional tryout sessions they attend.
Players should arrive 15-20 minutes prior to the scheduled start time in order to complete the registration process. Registration is done on-site by submitting the completed registration form which you can download from the link above. It is not done prior to the tryout. Independent evaluators will be on-site and each player must be registered properly. Early arrival will ensure players are ready to begin promptly.
Players will be evaluated for their technical, tactical, mental, and physical soccer abilities. Independent evaluators will evaluate the players and selections will be made by the coaching staff of the team from the pool of information established by the coaches evaluating players.
*Combined Age Groups
If a tryout is listed as combined and we have enough players to form an age-appropriate team at each age group, we will do that. If there is not enough players to form two separate teams then one combined team may be formed and entered into play at the older age. The lead coach at the session will discuss options with families attending the session
