Tryout process for boys/girls U11 and under:
This year at tryouts we will be introducing a couple of changes to the process and team formations for certain age groups and gender. First we will be creating a player pool out of tryouts for our U11 and under groups boys and girls. This will give us a better chance to make sure we get to evaluate the players longer to place them in the correct development pathway. This will be an ongoing evaluation thru June. At the end of June we will place kids on to teams based on multiple coaches evaluations. This will ensure a player has a better overall experience and level of success. This will be a starting point. Constant assessments at these younger ages is critical for their long term success. If a coach feels a player should move up or down based on the players development, we will move the player accordingly. We treat every player as an individual not a number. Remember, this is a marathon not a sprint and every player develops at a different pace.
Tryout process for high school girls teams:
This year we will be moving to more of an Academy style approach. What does this mean? We will be selecting teams from a two year window. We have our trap year U15 age group that has some 8th and some 9th graders then jump to U17 and U19 age groups. We are creating this for multiple reasons. The biggest reason however is player pathways past club. We want to ensure that every player that wants to play can play at the proper competitive level. Those players interested in college no matter what the team should always be looking for ID camps of schools they are interested in along with colleges we will bring over locally.
Thanks for continuing to grow with us and appreciate your commitment to the players and the process.
*NEW for 2021-2022 Season*
Due to COVID-19 Players must pre register for tryouts. After team placements have been made they can be modified once teams return to training. Coaches will move players as they see fit for the players best development. Parents need to keep in mind that the coaches have the best interests for these players and need to place them accordingly to their development.
