FALL TRAVEL BOYS SOCCER TRY-OUTS

  • Try-outs are scheduled for the end of June and early July, but the dates are not finalized.  Each age group will have at least two try-outs
  • The boys will be evaluated by a minimum of three coaches to make sure that the try-outs are done in a fair and unbiased manner
  • Kids from other towns are allowed to try-out
  • Boys from lower age groups are allowed to try-out for the older age groups.
  • We will hold three separate try-outs for the boys teams: U10 (U8-U10), U12 (U11&U12), and U14 (U13&U14). 
  • Our preference is to have a team at the U8, U9, U10, U11, U12, U13, and U14 age groups, if possible.  If an odd age group doesn’t have enough players for a team then that age group will be eliminated and those boys will need to try-out for the next older age group.
  • The teams will be playing:
    • U8 Team          U10 division    Parent Coach: TBD
    • U9 Team          U10 division    Parent Coach: Tom Briggs
