Q: Who needs to attend tryouts?
A: ALL players (U9 to U19). If a player is unable to attend tryouts, they still need to be registered for tryouts to be placed on a team.
Q: What is included in the tryout registration price?
A: Tryout dry fit jersey, licensed coaches/trainers overseeing tryout evaluations, and administrative/registration fees.
Q: Do we need to attend tryouts and do we need to attend both sessions?
A: Yes. All players will need to register for tryouts. If there is some reason a player cannot try out, they will need to contact the Director of Coaching. Please schedule accordingly. Tryouts capture a better snapshot of the player from a different evaluator and will help in placement.
Q: What should I bring?
A: Bring the same equipment you would bring to a game or practice. Make sure you are prepared for the weather. Bring plenty of water.
Q: When should I arrive?
A: Please arrive about 30 minutes prior to the listed start time. This will allow the players time to check in and warm up. Tryouts will start on time.
Q: Can I watch the tryouts?
A: Parents are allowed to stay at the fields, but need to stay at the concession area. Parents are not allowed to be by the fields their players are trying out on.
Q: Can you tell me the evaluation criteria so I can help my child improve?
A: No. We use 5 categories to evaluate the players. All relating to the game of soccer. When players know how they are being evaluated they focus too hard on standing out and lose focus playing the game.
Q: Will the results of the tryouts be posted?
A: No. We do not publicly share our tryout results. Any player that may have a concern about their placement may contact the Director of Coaching or the Travel Director.
Travel Tryouts are required for ALL players that want to be placed on a team. If your child is unable to attend tryouts, you will still need to register him/her and make arrangements for an alternative evaluation. Anyone not registered for tryouts will not be placed on a team. Please note, if your daughter is eligible for U12 or above, she will need to tryout through the Western Wisconsin program.
