TRIBE SOCCER

Select Team Program

 




The Tribe will be conducting Select Team Tryouts (Boys and Girls)
for the U11, U12, U13, U14 and U16 age categories for this coming fall and Spring …

 

Not familiar with the differences between Tryout Teams and traditional recreational soccer teams? Below is a quick primer …

  1. The Tribe’s Select teams will compete at Level 1, the highest level of competitive junior soccer. Teams at Level 1 are made of players invited to play for the selected team. The rest of the Tribe’s teams compete at Level 3, often referred to as recreational soccer. This is the level the majority of junior soccer players play at. At Level 3, teams must be randomly made up of players – no players other than the coaches’ immediate family may be invited to play on the team.  
  2. The Tribe will attempt to build girls, and boys teams made up of the best players from each age group. During tryouts, each player will perform a number of drills and scrimmages and be looked at by a panel of assessors. These assessors will NOT be parents of children in the age group. They will judge the players on technical and physical skills, along with attitude and commitment.  
  3. Tryouts are only $20 – this is to cover materials needed to run the tryouts. We want ALL players who are interested to tryout. Even if they don’t make it, the feedback they receive and experience can be invaluable – and possibly lead to more success during this season and beyond! Players are also able to “play up” if they wish … this means that if your child was born in 2010, even though they would fall into the U10 age group, they may tryout for the U11 team.  
  4. If your child does make the Select Team, there will be minor additional fees compared to Level 3 teams. While Level 3 teams charge individually for Fall, Indoor and Spring seasons, Select Teams will bundle all these charges into a single, once-per-year charge broken down into three installments. The cost for Fall, one indoor session, and Spring will be $350 for registration + 100 coaching fees + $140 in tournament fees (U11/U12 and U13/U14); $220 for registration + $50 coaching fees + $80 in tournament fees for U16.
  5. Select teams wear traditional Tribe uniforms.
  6. Financial aid will be available for families who qualify.  
  7. If selected, your child will be trained by a head coach and team of assistants especially selected to oversee this squad. They will tailor drills and practices to fit the need of the players as they move through more advanced skill levels.
  8. If your child is not selected, your child will still be eligible for Level 3 competition, just as they were prior to tryouts.  
  9. Select Teams will practice 3 times a week.
  10. Select teams will play against a higher level of competition during the scheduled regular season, and any tournaments they enter will be against upper level teams.      

Tryouts will be held at the fields behind the Middle School, and registration will be done online prior to tryouts and at the field before each tryout.   
All players that fall into the proper age groups are encouraged to participate.  
Players are encouraged to attend as many tryout sessions as possible. To be considered for a Select team, players must attend at least one tryout session or make prior arrangements with coaches for alternative tryout alternatives.   
Players need to announce if they are trying out for a field or keeper position prior to tryout out. If players wish to tryout for a field AND keeper position, they must do so during separate tryout sessions.   
All players need to wear outdoor cleats and shin guards and need to bring their own ball.   
Please be at least 30 minutes early to register.
