Prior to Tryouts

  1. All players are asked to complete the online registration form to register for tryouts.
  2. Print and complete necessary forms listed above and compile documents.

  2. Come prepared at the first tryout with all necessary paperwork and documents.
  3. Every player must attend at least one of the two scheduled tryout sessions.

  2. The rosters will be presented to the Director of Travel and the Travel Committee and then presented to the Board of Directors for approval.
  3. As soon as the rosters are approved, the head coach from that age group will contact each player who tried out. Players will be informed no later than one week after the last tryout.

 

What Coaches are Looking For

Often times, players and parents want to know what a coach is looking for in a player. It is difficult to truly see all that a player has to offer in just two or three sessions. However, the tryouts will be structured in a way to allow all participants a chance to showcase their talents. Here is a quick explanation of each criterion:

Technical Ability
Technical skills: passing, dribbling, shooting, first touch, defending, etc.

Athletic Ability
Speed, quickness, agility, strength, body control, etc.

Awareness
Tactical skills: positioning, communication, decisions on and off the ball, etc.

Attitude/Work Ethic
We are looking for players who exhibit a positive attitude, take coaching points well, show good sportsmanship, and have an overall desire to improve as players.

Coaches and evaluators will use the Tryout Evaluation Form found HERE to help with their evaluations.
