Tryout Process

The ultimate goal of tryouts is to have a ranking for every player in the age group completed by our technical staff. 

- As players enter the dome, they are randomly given a number which is loaded into a google spreadsheet.
- Evaluators line up players and cross check numbers with google spreadsheet
- Players are then randomly assigned a team to play on (number of teams and what we play 7v7 / 9v9 are dependent on the number of players signed up)
- We have a minimum of two fields, field A and field B.
- Field A can be considered the higher level of play and field B the lower
- Every 15 minutes players are moved between groups based on their ability
- At the end of the session the evaluators have ranked all players on their field 1-X (there are evaluators for each field and then a senior staff (Neil Cassidy and Angelo Tartaglia) member overseeing)
- Players are thanked and the dismissed 
- Information added to age group spreadsheet to help with the selection process



Tryout Day

Players must arrive 15-20min before their session is set to start.  

Players must sign in at the desk in the lobby.

There will be NO ONSITE REGISTRATION- all players must be registered prior to attending.

All Players must have cleats / turf shoes, shin guards, and inflated ball.
